Giant Folk Eyeball (inactive) The Future of Folk Clubs (157* d) RE: The Future of Folk Clubs 20 Nov 07

Anahata - thanks for the link to Dave's radio show. I shall go and explore his podcasts whilst I paint my back room...

Paul - I will try to get to Kirkby Fleetwood eventually and also use the occasion as an excuse to stomp through some hills for a day in my big boots...

Snail - I suppose I can only go on what's available to me locally. I suspect if I lived in, say, Lewes, I would have a very different opinion. And access to Harveys' beers! My local folk club, when I visited it, was great fun but on the whole not really my sort of music - mainly singer songwriter stuff with a bit of early rock 'n' roll and poetry thrown in and only our 'Les from Chorlton' playing any traditional music. I had a great night out and I'll go again, but when it comes to seeing folk music live it's nearly always concerts for me rather than clubs at the moment. I hope this can change - one thing I do like about the pub/club setting is the smaller scale.

I suspect I should probably try to do something about it rather than whinge from the sidelines. That's going to be my new year's resolution, in fact...
