Thread Name: What is Happening to our Folk Clubs
Subject: RE: What is Happening to our Folk Clubs
I've seen them both. Tatie - Les quite a number of times. But we're talking about the standards of club-performers here, and I was responding to the comment about comedians in comedy-clubs. I see many 'floor-spot poets' in folk clubs - most, if not all, read their material as I described above, and seldom with any attempt at expression or feeling. Are they showing a 'lack of respect' for the poems they read?
