Subject: RE: Musicians Quiting and Venues Dying
I have just done a little research as someone is suggesting I go and see this Norcsalordie, and I don't know much about them (except they seem to be able to enthuse and annoy folkies, which sounds a reasonable combination to me!). I have just looked at their schedule and I am flabbergasted. They are the real deal and no mistake. Criss-crossing England playing pubs, night after night. Shrewsbury to Grantham to Shrewsbury. Fantastic stuff, fair play to them. I shall assuredly go and see them in Stone tomorrow, and I will shake their hands.(if they are too loud I won't stay, I think they may bne a bit young for me)
Their schedule reminds of the Boat Band twenty years ago, another band that played pubs all the time, but never got booked in folk clubs.

For your interest, here is the current week of Norcsalordie's travels which I found on their website.: read and admire. I honestly didn't think there was anybody doing this any more.
