Essex Girl Why is there never Folk on TV? (86* d) RE: Why is there never Folk on TV? 12 Jan 07

Scotland & Ireland TV & radio are more likely to put on folk programmes, but then they also have a good record of supporting live music anyway. Try to find a pub in London where you can have a session or just get out a guitar and sing a couple of songs. Many people, especially the under 30's are scared of acoustic, live music and would much rather sit in a corner with an Ipod in their ears. On the other hand our local folk club have actually been asked to do a Saturday evening session at a local pub, presumably to try to bring in some more customers.(Folkies are quite well known for their beer consumption) We've had 2 good sessions so far. The next one is on Saturday 27th January, so if anyone is in the area, it's in Clancy's, Lower Road Woolwich. And after all who wants to spend Saturday night glued to the box, it's all C...p anyway.
