". I'd say choose a club where they welcome you with a smile,"

I always remember the one where I was asked in a very offensive tone if I realised that I had come into the folk club. If I had just gone on spec rather than especially to see the guest I would have told the guy where to put his club.

"Did people really enjoy what I did, or were they just tolerating me (because folk folk are welcoming), and being polite?"

That is a problem in the folk scene. I have heard of one person who won't play at folk clubs because he can't tell from audience feedback of he did a good job or not.
