Thread Name: Is Hull Folk Club Rubbish?
Subject: RE: Is Hull Folk Club Rubbish?
jOhn, I run a folk club in Sydney, Australia, which also happens to meet on the first Thursday of the month. We have been going now for nearly 7 years. The worst thing is always the worry about whether people will come, and some months have been lean. But fortunately enough people have said encouraging words that make me feel like keeping on going.

Make no mistake about it, you are doing a great thing - it is sometimes thankless, but don't give up - the rewards will come. And try not to let the knockers worry you - you are contributing something to folk - they are contributing nothing. As they say - "Nil Bastardo Carborundum" - Don't Let the Bastards Grind you Down.

Best wishes, Jenny
