I just googled "uk folkies" and couldn't see anything resembling a folk forum.

Please can you give us the actual URL or a link?

Ta! :)

Not very interested in wind instruments, bagpipes, percussion, dancing or unaccompanied singers, are they?

Three banjo sub-forums though.

I don't think I'll bother.

Thanks Dave.

Jack - I thought that too - nothing for singers of any description! but probably worth mentioning that to the webmaster, only way he'll know there's a demand...

Exactly. I have just asked for a section for folk club organisers. If you don't ask you don't get.

The group started up after I gave a few workshops in the UK and Germany last year. A lot of the people involved are pretty new to music in general - in fact, quite a few people involved with the group started playing because of my online workshops.

For a small group of people together together for about a year, they are doing some pretty amazing things. This year saw the launch of the UK Folkies Retreat with a second event planned for '09, as well as a folk retreat in Germany.

In other words, a community of folk musicians without any of the baggage screwing up all of the other "scenes".

Get involved. You'll meet some good people.

Why split things up into so many separate areas anyway? The result is just going to be that no one subforum gets enough traffic to be viable. Imagine what Mudcat would look like if it was made up of separate areas exclusively for children's songs, bawdy songs, guitar accompaniment, library resources, American folklore, German traditional music... none of the cross-fertilization that makes this such an interesting place could happen.

I'd be quite interested in discussing music with any of the three different kinds of banjo player that ukfolkies recognizes, but I would definitely have NOTHING in common with a tenor banjo player who didn't even want to talk to 5-string banjo players.

Come back and tell us when you've got an "anything goes" area.

I'd even go further than that. I'm not clear exactly what the site is trying to achieve that other sites don't. Unless there is a specific something, there's at least the chance that it simply diverts traffic from a struggling-but-surviving site so that you end up with two sites that aren't viable.

I get the impression that it might be trying to avoid two things that are seen here - drive-by trolls and discussion of "what is folk".

However, since so many English "Folk songs" (you know what I mean) survive mainly in the form re-learned from their last survival in the wild in Appalachia I am inclined to think that the UK/US linkage here is useful.
