Thread Name: Our ghastly folk tradition
Subject: RE: Our ghastly folk tradition
Hmmm, well I've been to at least two of the festivals on Joan's most recent list and I don't recall seeing an abundance of young folkies either in the sessions or even in the concert audiences (though admittedly I tend to be more interested in the former, so I don't see all the concerts). And admittedly my last festival was (I think) September 2006, so it is of course possible that they've changed beyond all recognition in the last 18 months. But somehow I doubt it. It's also possible of course that this army of bright young things has a sophisticated intelligence network enabling them to find out when I'm planning to come to a festival and then agree amongst themselves to give it a miss...but am I really THAT important??
This is all starting to sound a bit like, Crisis? What crisis?, but then I guess, in the fullness of time, we'll see, won't we...(I can only lead a horse to water...)
