Thread Name: What is Happening to our Folk Clubs
Subject: RE: What is Happening to our Folk Clubs
'The last few English folk clubs I went to tolerated Cliff Richards and Buddy Holly numbers badly performed (one read from a crib-sheet)'

nowt worse in my opinion than a roomful of folkies 'tolerating' the intolerable. in truth, do they really tolerate?
I admit they generally refrain from acts of violence, loud execrations, throwing ordure.....however, its not really toleration in any meaningful sense.

more sort of sublimated hatred.
