GUEST,Peter The current state of folk music in UK (2105* d) RE: The current state of folk music in UK 04 Nov 19


The loss of folk clubs is probably under stated because of a trend from weekly to monthly when new clubs do start.

in the nineties and noughties there was a definite move away from clubs to sessions. Where I am now this is suffering due to pub closures and the shift in pub culture from drinking to eating.

Comments above about Yorkshire suggest that people up there still eat at home and drink in the pubs but south of the Humber the trend is definitely to eat out and drink cheap supermarket booze at home.
