Subject: RE: UK Folk Revival 2018
I will try and explain why i think commercialism has contributed to the decline of folk clubs. AND uk FOLK REVIVAL
1.Lack of available club premises as manager of pub thinks more money can be made puttin on discos etc.
2. Performers altering direction because more money can be made from song writer composotions [prs imro etc]and doing less trad, temptation for performers to try cross over folk sounding love songs with folky sound to make more money and get composotion royalties,moving away from trad music and political social comment, because the two are less likely to get mainstream extablishment airplay[ with a few exceptions jez lowe springs to mind]
