Subject: RE: BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2019
no joe, suucessful clubs are ones that are advertised well and organised well and have   good residents and good regular performers, being shortlisted for an award is not in my opinion anything to do with it. you quoted a club that jez lowe was booked at that closed, jez does not perform trad material, he has a good rep as a song writer yet the club closed . where is the connection with trad music, you rr cooments make no sense, other than the club was poorlu organised and had poor floor singers , ok so if the club had been well organised and had good residents and jez had a proper length of set[ an example of bad gorganisation] you would have enjoyed the evening more, that is my point. none of which has anything to do with wide range of folk music but more to do with good quality music
