GUEST,Banjiman Its why people dont go to folk clubs.... (235* d) RE: Its why people dont go to folk clubs.... 18 Jul 12

I quite like ATBPWM and I really like really old really long trad ballads.

But I like to see any of them done well........ with life, passion and genuine emotion. This can mean closing your eyes and grimacing if this is required to get the guts of the story across.

I like music with a message ....... the more political the better. As for the old ballads/songs being about nothing important, I think that is b*ll*x. They were written/ conceived about subjects that were important to the people at the time...... and often with a moralor political message. If you choose to hear it.

Horses (not again!) for courses.
