BB The Young Un's (93* d) RE: The Young Un's 26 Jul 09


"Well, after hearing what i have heard being said by a southern folk club to a not such well known prospective performer in their neck of the woods, but mightily well repected in his own back yard, then it is hardly surprises me that the Young'uns stay up North "where it's vibrant and dynamic". Not every performer puts bums on seats but that shouldn't always be the criteria for selecting an act. Well I shall not rabbit on about inbreeding but introducing something different freshens up the bloodline!"

Stallion, do you really think this only happens in Southern folk clubs? If so, wake up! It happens all over, and will continue to happen until organisers are prepared to get out there and listen to new people, and then book on the strength of ability, rather than just a 'big name' or because someone comes cheap, so that their audiences will learn to trust them to always book something good, whether they've heard of them or not. It used to happen, once upon a time, but it seems rarely these days.
