Thread Name: What songs can you sing in a folk club?
Subject: RE: BS: What songs can you sing in a folk club?
Some of the trad' folk songs realy grind on me, but I never show it. I always clap and admire people who try, whatever they are singing (or playing) Sometimes I play more modern stuff, I like it, and most others do to. In my opinion, the old trads in the "closed shop club" should be more tolerant. No wonder folk music strugles at times with poor turn outs. If I get the long face treatment from these narrow minded people, I give them a blast of "Delilah" rock style on my celtic harp. The velosity of applause blows the cobwebs off there faces.
