Jim Carroll Hope for folk music - Jon Doran! (262* d) RE: Hope for folk music - Jon Doran! 23 May 20

Some are, some aren't in my opinion Bonzo - but nowhere near enough to make a real difference
One of the main problems is that the scene has been deliberately ripped up from the grass roots to make room for wannabe professionals, which means cap-doffing to the music industry and pleasing the media rather than using it
I think Peter is spot on, other than his view of the clubs
Iris music can and will survive in a session environment, but sessions offer no future for singers, who require attention for say, longish ballads and narrative songs
Music Sessions can be too noisy but a good one usually manages to rise above the noise and win a listening environment
THat is yet to happen for singing
