GUEST,Some bloke Where Have all the Folkies Gone (187* d) RE: Where Have all the Folkies Gone 19 Feb 19


I got as far as Jimís opening salvo reckoning that young performers are more interested in writing their own songs and whereís the folk in that?

Folk eh? If only there was an evolving tradition genre of music where songs of yesterday through the generations are blended within a performance with new songs that reflect todayís society?

Tsk.



Meanwhile back in the real world. Iím enjoying the most productive period in UK folk since the revival. The young talent we book at our club each and every week combined with the nostalgic treat of our heroes of yesterday who still tour...

Itís a golden age for the traditional and wider folk music appreciators. One bloke who comes every week even wears his trousers up to his tits. Living the dream eh?
