Bounty Hound What makes a new song a folk song? (1710* d) RE: What makes a new song a folk song? 06 Oct 14


'and what will you have to hand over other than a load of atrophied junk. stuff even you will not remember without recourse to a ringbinder. stuff that will send everyone scuttling out for a pee whenever you inflict it on a fplkclub audience.

So let's see if I've got this right then Al, you consider the tradition to be 'atrophied junk' but you call yourself a folk singer, so did 'folk' only start when you first appeared?

Well of course we all know that's not the case, but to quote Howard again, 'All that we ask is that you recognise and respect the traditional music which is at the core of a music scene which allows you to find a voice.'

Answer the question I've asked you several times then, why do you associate yourself with this 'atrophied junk'?
