synbyn 'Support Folk Clubs' - The Guardian (29) RE: 'Support Folk Clubs' - The Guardian 22 Sep 08

well, in the south-east of England we're very fortunate, in that there are plenty of people who give up a lot of time to make folk clubs happen- if you apply the 2-hour rule here ( 2 hr drive or less) there are at least 20- public transport is a pain after 9 tho, so it means driving or being driven. The Sussex clubs are good & strong, and every month in Kent there's Tonbridge, The Beacon, Dartford, Faversham, Deal, Dover Crabble, The Drum, Rainham and a whole range of other venues who have regular guests, and the sessions like Tenterden and Maidstone are also well attended- and some like the Woodshed in Broadstairs where young players are welcomed and made part of the playing group very readily. And there is no doubt that a new generation of folk musicians is coming through strong- not just those who are discovering the sixties music but some who are making their own interpretaions of standards. The festivals in Kent seem to be growing in strength as people who did a bit of music in their youth are coming back in- it's a good time to be involved!
