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


No attitude involved Leveller, merely recalling what I have seen.

They do not attend Folk Clubs as they do not get paid what they are told on their courses to expect to be paid.

They do not attend Folk Clubs because they do not want, and are not prepared to listen to others do or perform.

They play superbly, but with absolutely no contact with their audience, no interest in entertaining.

The graft and grind I am talking about is by LEARNING at the coal face how to entertain, how to win an audience over and how to connect with them. That is where the likes of Hamish Imlach, Danny Kyle, learned their craft. I daresay that Dick Miles and Big Al could confirm that, after all that is what they applied themselves to and did over decades of performing.
