In the area I reside, there?fs a good amount of folking about both close to home & if one can travel, there?fs more to be found in outlying districts.

I?fm in Chester & given a 50-mile radius around this centre, there?fs numerous villages, smaller towns & settlements within this area yet some seem total folk deserts.

I?fm not sure of the reasons for this, as there?fs probably a number of variables.

Anyone any thoughts?

We're in a similar situation where we live in Leicester -some nights there is a choice of six or seven clubs we could go to.
I used to live in East Sussex, and that was one of the "deserts" you're describing, though admittedly that was a long time ago.

Ok, I can guess that in some places, there's not sufficient population of musos/singers to support a musical get together, yet some tiny places have burgeoning venues.

I think in some areas there are known and publicised gatherings running in parallel with another bunch of non-publicised ones which suit the participants to maintain as they are rather than expand or throw open to the world.

I went to a new place (for me) which has existed for some years within 15 miles of me and then discovered two other ones within a similar radius which I was completely unaware of.

It's all secret society stuff. Keep your ear to the ground and you'll find the places that you want.

Desert. Hmph ! You should come over here.
