Subject: RE: UK Folk Revival 2018
Joe - circa 1979, when I was about 20, me and my girlfiend had a night out at a folk club a bus ride outside of Leeds..

We were young, vibrant, enthusiastic for new experiences...

That was enough to put me off 'folk clubs' for the rest of my life..

..it was more like happy clappy sunday school..

I've tried dipping in others a few times in the decades since...
and enjoyed some of what was on offer

but it's just not for me...

I prefer the atmosphere of a proper down to earth unpretentious working man's club...

[but not many of them surviving either, that haven't been tidied up and refurbed to death...]
