Although the brain cell(memory) is under some stress, I seem to remember a time when residents and some club members would do a swap and act as guests at another club. The favour being returned at a later date.

Has this happened recently, is it any good, is it worth a try?

Cheers

We used to do 'Club Swops' fairly regularly in West London Area back in the Good Old Days - Made a change from a normal Singers Night !
    Not sure why it doesnt happen any more !

A couple of years back Gainsborough Folk Club singers were going down to St Albans and they came up to Lincolnshire. Not all together, but as seperate acts.

I think Mr & Mrs Sooz did it
and Backwoodsman did it

And George Papavgeris came up here
And Moses and The Ref came up here
And even Breezy came up here

Folk Union One (Hull) and the Bridge (Newcastle) used to meet together in the Dales. Camp at Bill Cowley's farm and help get his harvest in.

About 1972 was the last one as I recall.

First time I ever dwile flonked.

Seaford Folk Club swapped with Nellies in Tunbridge Wells ten years or so ago. Haven't done it since because, I believe, Nellies moved from a Sunday night to a Monday.

Les - I assumed the original poster would reply, but as he hasn't yet, the Sunray is at Broadmayne, near Weymouth, Dorset.

it can work if the clubs have sufficient performers/singers to exchange , I tested the water but it came to nowt.

I wouldnt have called it an exchange with Villan, he didnt/doesnt have a 'club with residents' as such but we did have performers from up there. Sooz, Blanks and lovely young couple who came down and played to us.

in theory its a great idea as long as the clubs are on differing evenings

Thanks Terry, I had a look on the Sunray website and obviously(?) missed the "Weymouth, Dorset" tag.

I don't run a club as such but our Singaround at The Beech is extremely well supported by a great crowd from Songs in the Snug at The Saracens Head in Warburton, Lymm, North Cheshire. We keep muttering about going to The Saracens more often and perhaps other clubs but never actually "book the coach".

Cheers

The session scene around us is quite lively with our regulars attending several different sessions as individuals, but on a few occasions the famous Totternhoe Old Farm Inn brigade musters their massed ranks for Tottie-on-tour visits to other venues and even pubs who don't normally put on music nights.

We try not to intimidate the locals and we are generally well received.   Our 'home' sessions are weekly and can become a bit stale if new material is not forthcoming, new performers and visitors from other venues can produce a terrific boost of interest from audience and regular performers alike.

The Stockton Folk Club and the Cutty Wren Folk Club do swaps occasionally. The Wilsons' folk club at the Welly does swaps occasionally I believe.

You are all welcome to come to the newly formed Lakeside Folk Circle at Teralba NSW Australia at anytime. The next gathering is on Sunday, March 22 - just enough time to get on the plane, recover from your jet lag and perform for us! Oh and Hi Vectis - been to the Isle of Wight lately??

Nonesuch folk club did it a few years ago and it was great fun. The best bit is that you get to play your favourite stuff that your 'regular' folk clubbers are bored to death with.

It's a great idea.

Hi Vectis - We were there last year for a couple of weeks as part of a three month European cycle tour. Saw my two brothers and sister. The place hasn't changed a lot has it. Cowes seafront from the S'oton ferry looks much the same as it always did. If you ever get this way look us up.. heaps of folk music/musicians in the Newcastle NSW area. Cheers, Paul

And we've got a proper Folk Club too! The Downland Traditional Folk Club every second friday in the Castle Inn Newport.
Back to the thread....Many years ago when I helped run the other Cutty Wren Folk in Hythe Hampshire we swapped guests (well one way only really) when our booked guest went to the wrong Cutty Wren, oh how we did laugh, not!

Brighton SIngers' Club swapped a couple of times in the early 1980's when we had easy access to a function room.

The problem was that we became a bar based Singers' Club quite early on so couldn't really offer the club room atmosphere most others would expect.

The idea gradually faded out of memory but some of us discuss it sometimes particularly as many of us tend to stick to singarounds, having little to do with the local Guest Club scene. So swapping with other singers'clubs could be good for promoting strong links between our sort of folk club.

The Function room? Since Spring 2007, we moved (opening huge rifts between the organising team ) to function rooms for all our Singarounds so the idea once again floats around.

We'll watch the debate with interest - along with the Mudcatters Folk get-togethers. eg in Scotland later this year. Any club interested can contact us through myspace.com/fyviesfolk.

Miskin Man ... I will probably be there next year... so we can call it a sort of swap from Teralba NSW if the dates work out right!! We were at Hythe too last year, via ferry from Soton, before disappearing on our bikes into the New Forest.

One of the good things about the (relatively recent) upsurge in singers circles/clubs in Ireland has been the extent to which they support each other. Apart from providing "special guests" on occasion, a carload or two from other clubs within striking distance will usually turn up at any session. Helps to encourage the new clubs - and adds variety to the mix at the established ones.

Regards

The Somers TFC (Fri Albion, Worcester) used to do this as a regular yearly thing and part of the summer caoch trip to interesting places. The problem then was finding clubs that meet on Saturday night or getting them to hold a special night. But they did it until demand waned a little and the new committee had better ideas. And some members of a club 40 miles away used the night as an infill during their summer recess, they don't now. I stopped going about then. But I am 40 miles in the other direction now.

Having followed the thread on 'Guest Nights on the way out:

Guest Nights

I was provoked into thinking about Club Swaps and how they may or may not help. I was then surprised to find I had already asked that quesion some time ago.

Still worth thinking about?
