pirandello What IS Folk Music? (132* d) RE: What IS Folk Music? 14 Mar 07

People like Richard Bridge are the sort that want to protect and cossett folk music as though it were some kind of holy artefact only the privileged cognoscenti are allowed to talk about.
The fusty attitude displayed is guaranteed to put anyone showing an interest the quickest way to the door.

Mr Bridge, I encourage you to check your calendar; it isn't 1954 anymore and folk music, performers, attitudes and definitions have moved on. I'm sure that you too would benefit from a slightly more open minded and less blinkered approach.
