Thread Name: What is Happening to our Folk Clubs
Subject: RE: What is Happening to our Folk Clubs
Quite recently, i heard a young man in Weymouth fc singing When Jones's Ale Was New.

I said, gosh! i haven't heard it sung like that for a long long time. where did you learn it? It was just like being in a time machine being in THe Jolly Porter in Exeter in 1965.

he said, oh my Dad was a folksinger. he was quite well known.

turned out he was Tony Rose's son.

what happened to folk clubs. I suppose we got old....
