Thread Name: Are there any OLD folkies out there?
Subject: RE: Are there any OLD folkies out there?
The problem that us "established" folkies have is that we have become very inward looking. We are very open and welcoming to other "established" folkies but people who just want to listen seem to be a nuisance who should be kept out of sessions and singarounds. (assorted threads passim).

How many of us performed on our visit to a folk club? I am sure that most of us served an apprenticeship joining in with the choruses with increasing vigour before taking the plunge at a singers' night.
