GUEST,Sidewinder Folk music in England. (77* d) RE: Folk music in England. 12 Jan 05


Great to hear you all so positive on change because evidently most of you feel the same way I do and want to include rather than exclude. I myself perform regularly at venues where Acoustic Workshops are the "in" thing. I try to learn new songs from a wide range of influences including; Duke Ellingtons "Don't Get Around Much Anymore", Robert Johnsons "Crossroad Blues and Dust My Broom",Hank Williams "I'm so Lonesome I could Cry" Dylans "Blowing in The Wind and All Along The Watchtower" Claptons "Layla and Tears in Heaven" and I am learning a couple of Nirvana and Oasis tunes I like. So it goes without saying; I should be given the same level of respect for whichever song I choose to perform and not be subject to barracking and negativity just because my song is not over a hundred years old and bears no relation to a sea shanty.This scenario is mercifully rare but you can understand how it puts people off having a go and I would be the last person to put anyone off - let's face it we need em'.
