Thread Name: What is Happening to our Folk Clubs
Subject: RE: What is Happening to our Folk Clubs
Iains, Sorry about this, you have said much I agree with on this subject, but the town I reside in, in Ireland, is brim full of music.

Not the type the purist would like obviously. Far too "commercial" for them. But just sometimes a young lad who has won 20 All Ireland titles at the tender age of 18.

So you will understand he's not really that very good. He, among many others, play superb music most nights of the week, they even let me in now and again (and by comparison I'm rubbish)

The outlying villages again are full of music and most of the musicians and singers are good, sometimes very good, young and old alike.
