Giant Folk Eyeball (inactive) John Lennon - Folk Singer (214* d) RE: John Lennon - Folk Singer 08 Feb 08

"wasn't there a feature in one of the broadsheets recently about that phenomenon in Manchester? It seemed to be centred around one club, but justified by the fact that they were planning to open similar clubs in other cities..."

That article was essentially an extended avertising piece for one bar, (which is 500 yards from my house and very nice it is too - they even occasionally let us old farts in!). However there are plenty of other 'nu-folk' events in Manchster that pre-date it. It's only been able to do as well as it has because of the existence of a thriving scene, I think. Most of that scene is low-key, DIY and fiercely independent - quite punk in spirit, in fact - and well supported.



Not that this has anything to do with whatsisname, that multimillionaire pop singer who wanted us to imagine we had no possessions and then had the temerity to 'wonder if we could'...
