Thread Name: Auditions for new Folk club in Barnsley
Subject: RE: Auditions for new Folk club in Barnsley
I'm just about at the point where people are hinting that I might be able to get some paid slots if I showed out more.
I am definitely asked to host singarounds.
I've been asked to sit in on some recordings, and some paid sessions of other bands.
Last week a member of the public (a birthday party in a pub, not part of the session) came up to me unprompted and was very flattering about a bit of guitar stuff I'd done.
The week before a member of the public (non-folkie, but seemingly muso) at the bar at a session of mine said what a good combination of guitar sound and voice I'd got on a particular song.
I'm not boasting, but pointing out that the idea of inclusion is not necessarily self serving.
Personally, there's a whole lot of stuff I'd like to do better, but I think you called the wrong shot this time.
