The UK Folk Club Network ~ has now decided on who to have in their "Steering Team" to no doubt bring the Folk Clubs in to line!

Just to set the record straight, The UK Folk Club Network has not set up a "Steering Team", it has set up a "Focus Group". On the Facebook group, I took issue with John Richards and others over a number of issues, in particular the need for "quality control" of floor singers and the intention to intervene in the management of individual clubs. On the strength of that, John suggested I join the Focus Group which I have done. From there, I will continue to argue my point of view that the UKFCN has considerable potential as long as it recognises its limitations.
