GUEST,Some bloke EFDSS awards funding for new music (61* d) RE: EFDSS awards funding for new music 18 Aug 17


Presumably, those carping about this have no issue with trotting out terms such as living tradition, oral evolution of song etc etc. Yet have some narrow nostalgic definition that defies logic.

This is a most welcome initiative that Vic is publicising, helps keep the love of traditional music going long after fair isle sweaters and beards are subjects of history lessons and helps ensure the generation of the folk revival don't kill what they started by some bizarre preciousness that up till recently put younger people off.

I joined EFDSS years ago when the committee stopped wearing their trousers up to their tits. I'll be having a look around the various museums at Whitby though as singarounds of the same old songs won't be with us forever...
