When pubs/bars over the UK are closing at a rate of knots – and with them the sessions & folk clubs they house – the one place folk music is flourishing is the INTERNET, where you can read about and listen to artistes old & new.
First a floor spot by Priscilla Ahn – “Dream”
Here to discuss with me some offerings from the Internet (over a virtual pint of Pendle Witch) is my old mate Nigel Harbron, singer/ songwriter/folk journalist who runs a session in Cumberland.
YOUTUBE is wonderful. At the click of a mouse, you can have front seat at an Irish session or be a guest of the Ngoqoko Cultural Group.
For Internet novices: Google YouTube; then type in the artiste’s name opposite the icon that looks like a magnifying glass.
