Thread Name: are folk clubs shite?
Subject: RE: are folk clubs shite?
Whine, whine, whine,
But doesn't rhyme with 666,
So here's a quick fix,
Change your digit to 669!
Having recently inhabitated a floor spot at the Loaded Dog, I found that folk club a wonderful space to perform in. The acoustics were good, the audience was willing to join on refrain and chorus, the arrangements for strangers such as Naemanson and I were well coordinated, and we both enjoyed the other floor spots and the featured performers and we we were happy that they got the lion's share of the gate. Club managers such as Sandra work awfully hard to keep a folk club functioning, and generally the only compensation is the satisfaction of another wonderful special event, and maybe a thank-you.
Thanks again, Sandra, and Bob, and JennyO, and Margaret, and Allison!
