Welcome to Folk Beat!
This website has been established to archive recollections of the great folk era through the first-person experiences of artists, club personnel and related individuals who lived through those heady and unforgettable times.
The Folk Memories Archive is intended primarily to serve entertainers and their associates - to share and preserve memories, and very importantly, to provide a place where people who have lost contact over intervening years may reconnect.
All sorts of contributions are welcome, from brief descriptions of individual incidents to longer pieces, such as profiles, background material, commentary, reminiscences, etc. It's the place for discussion on all sorts of related subjects - like the definition of folk music, audiences, record companies, why the boom started and why tastes changed. Any informed remarks are most welcome!
Think of folkbeat.net as the cyber equivalent of one of those late night/early morning coffee houses where performers would gather around the fire after their shows and exchange gossip and gripes, experiences and opinions.
Off the subject of tangibles, we can't resist mentioning that the vibes attached to this project can only be described as “bubbling”
