Thread Name: UK Folk Revival 2018
Subject: RE: UK Folk Revival 2018
The current folk revival seems to me to be led by the younger generation with many coming from the product of the folk degree programmes at Newcastle/Gateshead, Sheffield and Leeds in particular ~ the whole attitude by graduates and indeed the current crop of folkies and established professionals is much more "professional" in its attitude

The folk clubs tend to be taken very much for granted or just ignored and the new "young thruster" quite rightly do their own thing and alternative venues and concert clubs seem to be coming to the fore

Venues and a professional attitude are the major revival changes in my view
