Rob Naylor Young Folkies - Where are you? (48) RE: Young Folkies - Where are you? 13 Dec 16

There are loads of them about in the UK at least....they just don't often come to regular clubs (unless as booked artistes).

A few I can think of offhand over here in UK are:

Gilmore and Roberts
Cardboard Fox
Carrivick Sisters
MG Boulter
Askew Sisters
Kris Drever (OK, nearly 40 now)
Flats and Sharps

Loads more.....

At the local level, I see a fair number at open mics. Only a week back I heard a 22 year old at an open mic in Devon do a lovely version of "She Moved Through The Fair". I've taken a few along to local folk clubs, but they never stick....a lot of younger people seem more comfortable with the open mic "ambience".
