GUEST,Don Wise It's why people DO go to 'folk clubs' (64* d) RE: It's why people DO go to 'folk clubs' 09 Aug 12


I've done my time on 'The Folk Scene'........until I fled Thatcher and moved to Germany 30 years ago.
Obviously things have changed since I moved away. Surely it depends upon how the club is organised? I can remember clubs where almost every night was a 'Guest' night and singers nights more or less happened only because the guest couldn't make it. Some clubs operated a 'residents and guest only' policy on guest nights. Others allowed a handful of floor singers selected on the 'first come first served' principle.Nobody ever told me back then,"Not tonight 'cos your not good enough (and you sing "The Wild Rover" to boot)!" Obviously audiences were more tolerant back then.
