ET UK Press view of Folk (35) UK Press view of Folk 22 May 05

The Times today22/June 05 Travel Section under the "Best of the Fests" - quote

Fairports Cropredy Convention August 11-13th Oxfordshire

"Nearly eveyone hates Morris Dancers - but not here. Even if you are not into folk (and lets be honest, most sensible folk are not) this is a great way to while away an August wekend."   The article continues with detail and talks of the "dreaded Morris Men roaming the streets".

I wonder if this is the vitriolic view of an individual or reflective of moden day "cool views".   I notice that the "Folk" section of CD sales areas in many nationals is shrinking rapidly. Is it time for an image makeover?
