Thread Name: What is Happening to our Folk Clubs
Subject: RE: What is Happening to our Folk Clubs
"I can't be expected to take responsibilty for what happened thirty of forty years ago when I wasn't involved in folk club organisation and you were."
Nobody's suggesting you are Bryan - I mentioned it because that is what happened and that is the reason it is ridiculous to exclude people who were around when folk clubs did what they said on the tin.
Thanks to the internet and discussions such as this, we have far more access to what is happening to folk clubs nationwide today than we ever had when we were just involved in our individual clubs 30 years ago.
Until discussions with people like you, I still held out the hope that clubs would return to their original vital role in disseminating our folk music.
I can only hole there are enough of the old lot around to run with the ball again - that we should all live so long!!!!
