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


I agree with Vic. Let's not descend to Jim's standard. I think Raggytash's last post was spot on except the last two lines.

Jim has rather excelled himself with -
You need to know what folk song sounds like, which probably excludes you
Such a decision requires an understanding of and commitment to folk song
If MacColl, Rossleson, Pickford, Bogle, Jack Warshaw et al can work it out I'm sure you can find someone to work it out for you Bryan

The rest is just typical nastiness


Niamh Parsons & Graham Dunne.
Not heard Graham Dunne by I know Niamh and I know her to be an excellent singer

Really?! We only booked them because we thought they were Britain's Got Talent winners.

We can't book MacColl 'cos he's dead. I don't think Eric Bogle is touring anymore and Ed Pickford and Jack Warshaw don't seem to have come our way. Being a folk club booking secretary is more a matter of selecting rather than seeking.

I asked Jim "Have you been following my recent postings about what's going on at the Lewes Saturday Folk Club?". Clearly,his answer was "No and I have no intention of doing so.". Don't let the facts get in the way of an entrenched position.
