Thread Name: Tight Folkies
Subject: RE: Tight Folkies
So, apart from the one unusual incident (which I think we've just about squeezed dry), there appears to be some sort of consensus: folkies do spend a lot of money, but on beer rather than other things.

Given that the other things at festivals are often tat stalls or overpriced food stalls selling inferior food, perhaps they've got it right!

Given the enthusiasm shown by landlords round my way for setting up folk and ale weekends (which are becoming increasingly popular), I don't think they regard folkies as skinflints!
