Jim Carroll uk folk clubs high standard (356* d) RE: uk folk clubs high standard 30 Apr 19


"I put up no arguments or conclusions"
You put it up as proof of an improvement - if I made a mistake it was that I overestimated that 'success'
I take something somebody puts up as an indication that they believe it to be true Dave
It might be "considerably more" but that is not been borne out by actual numbers
If you remember, we went on to disagree on what was acceptable at folk clubs
That particular argument floundered when I compared your suggestions with the wide variation to be found in the traditional song repertoire - you refused to respond
Later, when I quoted Martin Carthy's statement about the importance and relevance of folk song to modern life, everybody refused to respond
My apologies for giving a higher number in your favour, I'll try not to let it happen again
Jim
