Subject: RE: NEWS for visitors wanting to play in UK
While I support The Shambles in his battle for folk music against the forces of petty bureaucracy and jobsworthiness, I have to point out that the continuing description of the English situation as applying to "the UK" is, to say the least inaccurate.

This is not an "I'm alright, Jack." post, but please let's get our facts straight...

Sessions in Scotland are not under threat, in fact, the session scene is thriving when many folk clubs are struggling. Can't speak for Northern Ireland, or Wales.

But if you do come to Scotland - bring your instrument!!
