Ralphie The Concept of FREED Folkmusic (1216* d) RE: The Concept of FREED Folkmusic 29 Sep 10

Totally agree. It's a sad reflection on humanity that a lot (not all) of youngsters are just looking for the quick buck. Whether it be instrument makers, buiders, whatever.
A craftsman is a craftsman. Period.
Years of training, even more years of honing their skills.
Mainly surviving on a minimum wage. for maximum hours.
I'm so pleased that this thread has moved slightly away from Conrads deranged ravings.
Let's celebrate the artisans of this world, who against all odds, provide instruments (or other services) that are objects of beauty.
If you've ever seen a Dickinson or Dipper concertina.....Your jaw would drop!
Looking at Conrads cars, my jaw dropped too. Sadly, not for the same reason.
