GUEST,irishenglish folksingers who quit,and why? (180* d) RE: folksingers who quit,and why? 10 Nov 07


Jim Lad-Follow that up with a bunch of Bongo Ensembles and you've pretty well got what is now called a folk festival. Hmm...I take it you might be refering to "World Music." Although I dislike that umbrella term for anything not in your own language, it does encompass folk and traditional music, as well as contemporary music, and should at the least be recognized as such. I understand that YOU might want to attend a festival that is only traditional music of the English/Irish/Scottish/etc. variety, and there's nothing wrong with that. But I think its a little insensitive to refer to a music you don't like as a bunch of bongo players. Not a personal assault, mind you, just an observation.
