Subject: RE: What is Happening to our Folk Clubs
why would Iain holding an opinion have any effect on what happens?

the intrinsic value of Shakespeare sustained it through periods of its unfashionability? (is that a word?)
blues music went through a similar sort of thing apparently = particularly acoustic guitar blues. Skip James and Mississippi John Hurt had to make livings doing other stuff.

Iain's allowed an opinion. A bit like you Jim, his absolute certainty that he's right is occasionally worrying.
