GUEST,Ewan Spawned a Monster English Folk Degree? (549* d) RE: English Folk Degree? 05 Jun 08

Been avoiding this torturous thread - though hats off to Sue, Ruth, Phil, Sedayne, Howard, Glue etc for some fair points well made.

Richard's point about the need for a specifically English folk degree brings me back here though.


We have this great course that's churning out some top class, well informed, largely (but not entirely) English performers tutored by some of the great names in English folk performance and academia. In what way is that not to be celebrated and applauded? In what way does it not give Richard (and the wavy one, for that matter) exactly what he says he wants? Surely you're not getting yourself into a twisty underpants situation merely because the word 'English' isn't on the course title?

Is our folk degree somehow not good enough for you? When you're such a staunch defender of the good enough for folk corner?
