Thread Name: What is Happening to our Folk Clubs
Subject: RE: What is Happening to our Folk Clubs
Yes bookings can be down to one person, but that one person should be

aware of the attraction of certain acts and the problems with others ~

club audience is a fickle thing and many factors will come to play ~

indeed with a folk club the weekly attendees could all be musicians ~

not come the week/s that guests are booked etc

Many clubs have folded and the right balance can be of paramount

importance ~ building audiences of different sorts could be a good

idea! Paying to see guests, floor singers, floor musicians, raffle

persons, treasurer, etc all are important in getting a thriving club ~

but do not leave all to the few ~ too many dead (useless individuals)

should be pulled out of the ruck (Rugby Union sorry) moaners and groaners can be disasterous (in gest! er um)
