GUEST,Banjiman Do purists really exist? (821* d) RE: Do purists really exist? 07 Jul 11

John P.

I listen to a lot of trad songs...... and I listen to a lot contemporary folk (and other STYLE) songs.

What I hear is a continuum ...... I really can't see a sharp line that "defines" one from the other.

And that really is my point.

If you as obviously the expert (assuming I'm completely unlearned, as you gently point out), can't tell where the line is, what hope have I got? Yep, I'm confused again.

As for getting educated, that is what I'm trying to do here. But I'm struggling to grasp any key learnings from the insults you're throwing!
