Re: the 'Traditional v. Contemporary' gubbins earlier on, the songs we call 'traditional' today were the 'contemporary' songs of their time. The best of today's 'Contemporary' songs will one day be acknowledged as 'Traditional'. 'Tradition' isn't something fixed in a particular period in the past, with a big full-stop after it - it's constantly developing and evolving. We HAVE to have songwriters today in order to ensure that the tradition continues and grows, and we should salute people like Harvey, Allan Taylor, Jez Lowe and many, many more, for their wonderful contributions.
Here Endeth The Lesson.
