Mark,....' I don't expect concert performances......'
Nice one ! One of the good things about Folk clubs is the fact that you get a wide range of abilities. This can serve a useful purpose of perspective of your own perceived performance. Also you get a lot of encouragement and at the end of the day ' practice makes perfect'. I'm sure everyone has experienced that wonderful feeling when you realise that everyone is listening to you, after that the odd noise here and there doesn't really matter. Good job the gymnasts aren't put off by a little bit of noise!!
