Gedi 'More pretentious than Bellowhead' (241* d) RE: 'More pretentious than Bellowhead' 08 Oct 10


I've been reading this thread over the last couple of days and I have to say it makes fascinating reading. I endorse wholeheartedly Tom Bliss's comments, they sum up the situation very nicely.

But for me the real folk scene is not Bellowhead, or any of the other names mentioned (no offence intended), but in the grass roots singarounds and sessions such as takes place at The Beech in Chorlton, and the fabulous weekend of music, singing and dancing (Morris, French and other styles) that just took place in Tideswell in the Peak District (organised by the Freaks in the Peaks). And anyone who says that the Folk movement in England is dying really should come along to the next event to see just how wrong you are. Wonderful stuff.....
