GUEST,Tom Bliss Is traditional song finished? (621* d) RE: Is traditional song finished? 09 Mar 10

It's might be worth having a debate (while we wait) on to what extent a club IS a folk club if it doesn't actually use the word Folk in its title (as many don't).

Personally I call all the venues and gatherings who put on acts who work the 'folk circuit,' who operate in the same basic ways as conventional folk clubs, who advertise in the folk press, or who do actually call themselves as such, 'folk clubs' - and all my comments refer to all of these in a sort of generically vague way.

(I don't call singarounds or sessions folk clubs unless they have a name, but I kind of lump them in)

I think it may be song-gatherings (which quite often don't use the F word anyway) that stick in Jim's craw.

If clubs don't actually use the F word, does Jim mind what they put on?
