Thread Name: Folk Club Residents' Occupations
Subject: RE: Folk Club Residents' Occupations
In our club, all pretty much as Brian, DaveS and Marje have said except that we have a Family Hold Back policy so residents often don't get a floor spot on busy nights with a prestigious guest. We give priority to performers from the audience. I've heard that many clubs operate a similar policy.

On quieter nights, residents will usually fill in that slack first half hour just to make sure there is always something happening at the advertised start time and that awkward first slot after the interval when people are drifting back from the bar and nattering.
