GUEST,Captain Swing Why folk clubs are dying (728* d) RE: Why folk clubs are dying 14 Dec 08


Folk clubs will die because they have no relevance other than as a preservation society of something that has no need to be preserved. Traditional music, by nature, must exist as a contemporary form and flow naturally with contemporary culture.

The folk club has little to do with traditional music and even less to do with contemporary culture. Music that is truly traditional will also be contemporary.

Try playing your new found music to a live audience at a pub gig. Your expertise as a performer will ensure that you communicate it well and you may be surprised at how well it is received.
