concertina ceol The new face of folk (40) RE: The new face of folk 30 Apr 07


for goodness sake! i find countess' response very aggressive. Why are people so angry on this forum?

We were talking about an article in the Kent Messenger "What's On" (have you read it?). Amoungst other things the article says that Eliza lives in Edinburgh. It also pedals the usual rubbish about first family of folk and folk royalty etc. The original poster was complaining about lazy journalism and my post was in support of his point.

I love Edinburgh and had a relative that lived there until recently (died at 101). Edinburgh is well known for having a fantastic traditional music scene. It would be my opinion that it is not an "English" music scene though. It is up to Eliza where she lives I don't care at all. I was attempting - perhaps poorly - to point out that she will become influenced by the local scene - as I have been influnced by my local scene in Kent even though I am from Yorkshire. I may be weird but I'm not sure if that is a good thing. And it doesn't make me a rabid racist either! I like a broad spread of traditional music except for old time.

As I said I am a fan - I am listening to RED as I type - it's really good!

There was one error in my first post "Kath R" should have course been Kate Rusby.

take a deep breath and think peaceful thoughts before responding.

This is after all a discussion froum not an attack forum.....
