Folk clubs and live performances

3 posts in this topic

Is it just my impression, or are folk clubs in a bit of a renaissance? There are a lot of young performers coming into the folk scene, which is good to see. Thought I'd start a topic for this type of live music, so use it to flag upcoming gigs, recommendations for clubs and performers or to blow your own trumpet / penny whistle / whatever

PS for any who have never been, most clubs rely on local performers to do floor spots before a booked artist comes on (or sometimes rely just on locals). It's "shut up and listen" when someone is on, and all are encouraged.

A visit to a local club last night prompted me to me start this topic. Bungalow Bliss were the guests (https://www.reverbnation.com/bungalowbliss), not pro musicians but very together, they played a wide-ranging set at Crookes folk club in Sheffield.
