GUEST,Neil D 'More pretentious than Bellowhead' (241* d) RE: 'More pretentious than Bellowhead' 13 Oct 10


Part of the post that started it all read: "What upsets me so much is that this is music that our entire nation should be celebrating and as long as we present it in this kind of way, Joe Public isn't going to sit up and take notice. No other nation would stand for their traditional music being treated as such."
    Well many other nations treat their traditional music like a museum piece, kept behind glass and dusted off for the occasional history lesson. You Brits are lucky to have a healthy traditional scene that attracts thousands of people to clubs and festivals. I don't think that even the U.S. has as vibrant an atmosphere for trad music. While this discussion has become acrimonious at times, I think all here would find it preferable to no discussion at all for lack of interest.
