Subject: RE: English folk clubs & pub singing
Thanks everyone for the bounty of resources! I'll have a chance to look them all over this weekend when I'm home. To answer those who asked where I/we will be, that's all kind of up in the air right now, hence the open-ended question. One scenario that looks good, at least on a map, would be London, then up through Sherwood Forest and on to York. However, this can and probably will change. My family consists of two young boys (ages 4 & 7), my wife and myself. They do share my enthusiasm for the old songs to some extent, but our trip is much more tourist-oriented and not purely a music chase (which, by the way, sounds luxurious). So, what I was envisioning was sneaking off to a session by myself one night after the kids are in bed.
I'll be glad to contact the Dept of Culture, etc. over the weekend and report back on what they say.
