GUEST,Joe Folklore: Define English Trad Music (150* d) RE: Folklore: Define English Trad Music 24 Jun 08

Whats wrong with playing in the style that you learnt to play? Dont try and emulate any style. It makes the music sound forced, and a bit pants a lot of the time!

I play a lot of tunes (including a very small amount of Irish tunes) in the morris / southern English style which I have developed through local influences (loud, solid rhythm, dont hold the bow at the bottom, drone 2 strings a lot of the time). The response to my music is usually pretty good, but there are the odd people who try and tell me that my style is wrong, I should do this, etc.
