Soldier boy How many wandering musicians can't find a session? (77* d) How many wandering musicians/singers can 19 May 11

This is a serious question because I love the "fringe" folk scene/ happenings at folk festivals and it seems to me that we are increasingly being crowded out by Open Mic sessions and plugged-in bands in once what used to be our popular venues so we are left to increasingly wander the streets in search of somewhere to find a session where we can gather together and and have a right good do!

What has been your experience and observations?

Am I just a sad folkie "fringer" who continually finds himself in the wrong place at the wrong time or is this something that is also of concern to you?

Please discuss.
