TheSnail What is Happening to our Folk Clubs (1104* d) RE: What is Happening to our Folk Clubs 25 Oct 17


No club needs a workable definition - it needs a committee theat lives up to its promise of folk songs -- not at the exclusion of anything else but as a rule of thumb
Well there you are peeps. You have it from the man himself. It's entirely up to you. If you think it sounds like folk, you can put it on.

- if you are anything to go by, obviously not yours
Have you been following my recent postings about what's going on at the Lewes Saturday Folk Club? What is there that you consider inappropriate for a folk club? In a couple of weeks we've got Niamh Parsons & Graham Dunne. If they're good enough for the Frank Harte Festival, they are good enough for us. A little later we've got Brian Peters who will be doing us a melodeon workshop and a ballad forum as well as his evening performance. Not folky enough for you?

Some gems from the latest post -
If you are a folk singer, yo need to sing something that roughly resembes folk song if you are going to honourt what you call yourself - no rigid rule book
"roughly resembes"!
If you sing a song that you think will fit into an evening of folk songs nobody is stopping you - as I said, no rule book
"that YOU think"!
