Thread Name: What Folk Revival?
Subject: RE: What Folk Revival?
Spleen Cringe says, "folk clubs are simply the sum of the musical tastes of the people involved in them", Good point!
But, it will result in the death of the English Folk Revival because it seems to me that when I first went to folk clubs in the 60s they had been started by - and were dominated by - trad folkies, but somehow the singers of old pop songs and dubious singer-songwriter material have last the course better, and now they dominate a lot of the clubs that I attend.
