Thread Name: Young Folkies - Where are you?
Subject: RE: Young Folkies - Where are you?
"I meant that people were saying folk music would not exist as folk clubs died."
I do believe that the Clubs were fairly ideal as venues - can't think of another set-up that would give us all a chance to have a go, keeping the music at grassroots level.
Private sessions never really work for me - too exclusive
The ones I was involved in included local research and workshops
I'm desperately trying to get the latter idea off the ground for the number of young people who have expressed an interest but have nowhere to go
The bars just don't fit the bill
