I disagree, Observer. You have not proven the point that folk is in decline in any way shape or form. Folk is easily accessible any night of the week where I live too. And Airedale is far from being a major population centre. Your point about 16% of the festivals in the link not being folk festivals is a red herring. There are still 100 more festivals on their list that there were in 2010 and even if 16% of them are not what you regard as folk, that is still 84 more.
