GUEST,Hootenanny Where Have all the Folkies Gone (187* d) RE: Where Have all the Folkies Gone 19 Feb 19


Jim, from your post above


"What a pity you have to "book" your singers - we ran clubs where the residents were quite capable of singing their way though an evening without having to buy them in - grass-roots clubs"

Am I misunderstanding what you are saying? How would people in the provinces have been able to see Ewan and Peggy for example without booking them into their club?

I also question your statement "The folk scene was started so we could all develop our singing,and along with it, our understanding of folk songs".

Who was it that laid that down at what date?
