However strongly you feel about Ewan and the Singers Club. It was but one club in one city. There were and still are a number of clubs in a number of towns where people can enjoy the music that comes under the broad umbrella of folk. You probably would not agree with the policy or lack of it of many of them but they still work for many people and probably bring it to a wider audience by not placing restrictions on what to sing and how to sing it.

As far as the Singers/Ballads and Blues go: I was there, you were not.
No big deal but that is a fact.
