theleveller The irony of Costa del Folk (22) The irony of Costa del Folk 23 Sep 17

Am I the only one who finds the whole concept of Costa del Folk bizarrely ironic? The idea of well-heeled Brits flying hundreds of miles to listen to 'Cold, Haily, Rainy Night' with the sun beating down on their backs whilst sipping cold foreign larger and nibbling tapas seems to go against the whole spirit and essence of the music. But, then again, I suppose it's no more artificial than Captain Birdseye lookalikes who have never even seen a sailing ship belting out raucous sea shanteys. I suppose 'O'er the Hills and Far Away' might be more appropriate. Whatever floats your boat.
