Yeh good! if only it were that entertaining....people wouldn't be taking the piss.

I'm not saying folkmusic is a branch of the entertainment industry, but you really do hear some VERY strange things around the clubs. more to do with the individuals need to get up and perform than a desire to give something to the audience.

don't get me wrong - the folkclub has always been a place to learn the craft. But really too often - you're left thinking - this bugger doesn't know this song, doesn't know how it goes, and he's making up the words....sod me! he doesn't care!

I dunno. I think I'm getting old and less tolerant of loveable English eccentrics.
