Suffet Occupy Folk Music! (USA) (98* d) RE: Occupy Folk Music! (USA) 28 Nov 11


DtG,

You wrote: People who think they can run things act like that. People who realy do run things don't. [Note I corrected the misspelling of the word People.]

If that were the case, there would be no issue. Unfortunately, each of the examples I cited involved behavior by an club officer, organizer, panel moderator, or leader in the folk community. The "crap music" comment, for example, came from a highly respected and well known folk musician and club officer.

You also wrote: For every example you give of this kind of behaviour I could personaly quote ten in the opposite vein. I completely agree, and that is my point. We are talking about a small minority, whether it is 1% or 10%. But at least here in the USA, some within that minority hold positions of power and influence within the folk music community. I am happy to hear that is seldom, if ever, the situation in the UK.
