Subject: RE: uk folk clubs high standard
Good point Pseudonymous. Interesting to think that the very act of professionalising folk music to bring it into mainstream culture added to the decline of the amateur folk club that is so lamented by some. Looks like the choice is, stick with the "dreary amateurishness" or become mainstream. Who would have thought that the critics group itself contributed to the decline... ;-)
