Thread Name: Young Folkies - Where are you?
Subject: RE: Young Folkies - Where are you?
Seem to have some young folkies coming along in dear old England (UK) and Scotland ~ some convergence in Sheffield (Yorks) and the Scottish musicians and singers scene too!
Sheffield has two Universities and a number of established venues with regular meetings of ~ unaccompanied largely harmony trad sessions, musicians sessions, mixed sessions and folk clubs fortunately involving the likes of Jesse Arrowsmith, Jon Boden/Fay Hield, Jim MCDonald, Paul and Liz Davenport and other movers and shakers
This attracts new singers and gives them a platform for their future development and confidence
