Subject: RE: Can the famous give a shout to Folk Club
True enough - he probably played in all of them. I was at a concert in Salford around 8 years ago - Peggy Seeger and various Critics Group people. I think it was some anniversary of Ewan's. Much was made, and quite rightly too, of his life and his contribution to the second revival. One of the major features of that revival was Folk Clubs.
It struck me at the time that the performers could simply have said - If you have enjoyed tonight - go to local Folk Clubs. Since that time it has been so much easier to find Clubs through the net - so their is no need to be specific.
Can the famous give a shout out for Folk Clubs?
