GUEST,JoeG UK Folk Revival 2018 (605* d) RE: UK Folk Revival 2018 20 Aug 18


You appear to have condemned the entire youth of this country - well those who are interested in folk music anyway. I would far rather spend a night listening to the incredibly talented young people you seem to despise than to a whole evening of entirely traditional music. As for being 'forgettable' I am afraid you could not be more wrong.

Your attitude is one of the reasons most young people wouldn't be seen dead in a trad club such as you seem to think is the only valid venue for folk. Fortunately at the club I was a member of until we moved recently we had a very supportive attitude to young people and a couple of those who attended regularly recently are starting to do very well with getting gigs across the country.

The club also happens to be the longest continuously running folk club in the world and part of that success has been a result of the fact that it has an open mind to the artists it books and the floor singers who perform. Contemporary, traditional, blues, European & American artists have all featured. Long may it prosper
