Subject: RE: UK Folk Revival 2018
Observer you appear to be suggesting that if you can't sing there is no place for you in a folk club. I can't sing and can only play keyboard badly in the privacy of my own home but I have been involved in supporting folk music much of my life by attending clubs and festivals, helping to run clubs, venues and festivals and promoting music through reviews and writing for several magazines and on line music pages. I'm not having someone say that what I love, in it's myriad and marvellous forms isn't folk. It is and it always will be. In fact much of it will form part of the tradition in years hence
