Subject: RE: Traditional Music: Where are we going wrong?
I think we may be at cross purposes then, Gerry! I know that Rob said session which I think was the point - It was an open session and the young couple heard and liked it. Your point, and correct me if I am wrong, is that they would not have heard it if it was in a 'dingy back room', which is quite true. I am not going to fall out about it but all I was saying is you are right in that they would not have heard it but your description of a folk club (dingy room, being shushed) could be part of the problem that folk is not taken up be more people. Yes? If not, let's leave it at that and agree to disagree:-)
