Thread Name: Young Folkies - Where are you?
Subject: RE: Young Folkies - Where are you?
Folk clubs were probably never a particularly great idea in the first place. Did they ever exist in Ireland? And did the Irish miss out on anything?

My last few visits to Britain have proved somewhat of a folk disaster

You simply couldn't be bothered looking. As "selby" and the guy from Sheffield said, there are lots of young performers out there and they're easy enough to find if you look in the right places. Which folk clubs are not.
