glueman young people and Folk Music (43) RE: young people and Folk Music 12 Jul 11

The idea of clubs generally turn off young people, not just folk. From experience of my own children they don't mind joining one if it's a straight in there and doing kind of thing, but they have no time for proper form, deference or waiting to be 'accepted'.

Clubs are, I suspect, a way of organising things that peaked in the post-WW2 years and looking at their declining numbers, will die out in their current form.
