TheSnail What is Happening to our Folk Clubs (1104* d) RE: What is Happening to our Folk Clubs 24 Oct 17


How else have I insulted "thousands" if it is not through challenging what goes on in today's folk clubs?
It might be nowadays in an English club scene that couldn't find it's folk arse with both hands
You don't know what goes on in today's folk clubs.

That's a two-way street Bryan I'm sure you have found out.
I do my best to be reasonable with you, Jim, but you don't make it easy.

I have given up seeking help in Britain - I managed to get it locked in a cupboard, so as far as I am concerned the ball's in your court, otherwise, posterity will have to sort it out.
No, Jim. Your archives are your responsibility.

Sorry Bryan - I mistook your point, but the thrust of my argument remains the same
I would never dream of applying for a grant on the basis of such terminology

It was very entertaining to see you rubbishing your own words. The fact remains that you have not come up with a workable definition of what is acceptable in folk clubs but you still demand that others do.
For the record, here is the first sentence on our website -
Our interest is mainly (but not exclusively) in British traditional music and song and contemporary folk music/song derived from the tradition.
Rather better than "loosely conforms" I think.
