Thread Name: What is Happening to our Folk Clubs
Subject: RE: What is Happening to our Folk Clubs
Something for you to ponder on Jim, if folk clubs just had to rely on people like yourself for an audience I doubt if many, if any, would be open today.

The people you freely disparage are the backbone of the folk world week in week out in the 21st century.

Few have any notion of an archaic and outdated "definition" of folk, a definition drawn up before the introduction of television for the majority of the population, before the advent of the computer era, a superb way of disseminating information that a majority of us take for granted.

Now you may believe it still has credence but I'm afraid you are in a VERY small minority.
