Thread Name: Musicians Quiting and Venues Dying
Subject: RE: Musicians Quiting and Venues Dying
A point well made Pip but it would probably carry more weight were it not in a thread entitled 'Musicians Quiting and Venues Dying' - a thread started by someone who loves the music and is actively trying to promote it often at their own cost and one of a number of threads on the same theme recently

as for Norcsalordie - others speak for them

Breath of fresh air for the folk scene - great duo (folk club website)

I don't know much about folk music, but I do enjoy watching/listening to you guys - Keep it up (comment on MySpace)

I've never seen so many smiling faces in a Folk Club (floorsinger)

Norcsalordie are a fine young duo that have the talent to take a worn out, tired old folk song, give it a good kick up the ass, a shake down and produce something sparkling and fresh (folk organiser)

Best band in Broadstairs 2008 (video posted on YouTube)

The most difficult question they have to answer when knocking on the door of a live music pub is "what kind of music do you play" - answer 'Folk' and the chance of a booking often disappears

IMO if we are not to go round in ever decreasing circles we should at least be ready to accept the challenge of the young - I have sat through my fill of dirges however technically brilliant

As for other drinks you could order you could try a 'Spetzi' - a combination of 50/50 cola + fanta or where fanta isn't available 'Mud' = cola + orange juice
