GUEST,Tom Bliss Is traditional song finished? (621* d) RE: Is traditional song finished? 09 Mar 10


There are more:

Q: All anon songs

R: All public domain songs

S: Anything more than X years old (x varies from person to person).



Other points raised by Jim:

Spuds - well you chose the metaphor, but 'spuds' only refers to 'conventional' potatoes. Sweet potatoes also contain the word but are never called spuds, (aI won;t try to work in pomme-de-terre and pommes).


""Caveat Emptor is universal" It certainly is Tom - it's a universal way of passing the onus on to the customer and ducking your responsibility as a supplier of whatever."

Suppliers have responsibilities in law too.


There is no fool-proof word to describe all of the music in my list A - S. Folk is the best we have and thus it is used my most club organisers and most people in the folk world.

We all have things in the list that we might personally reject, but we accept that these are reasonable uses of the word to the other guy.

Ergo; Tunng have every right to call their music folk. They are neither cheating to gain acceptance nor behaving irrationally like Humpty Dumpty.

People call me a folk artist too. I'm content with that and I think you should be too.
