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

"Mr. Carroll, please don't chuck an insult at me like that"
What insult ?
Straw man isn't a reference to you - it is a reference to your attributing to me something I haven't said
I repeat - nobody had suggested a club that only deals with traditional, unaccompanied song - I've always avoided them like the plague
You've just repeated it
"I don't believe that a club focusing solely on traditional unaccompanied songs would be as successful;"
Who has mentioned suv=ch a thing ?
If you think a traditional repertoire is't "varied", you should look again - it is a damn sight more varied that the one-theme pop output which is largely populated by unidentifiable non-people
Nothing wrong with throwing music-hall and parodies, but the trad repertoire has everything they could offer in spades - from the big ballads to children's make-ups - bawdry, eroticism, belly-laugh humour, biter-bit smilse behind the hand, work, travel, wars, sea-going, love, hate, marriage...
Name one subject from a music hall song that can't be matched traditionally
" As usual it is all bluster and noise."
Now your resorting to personal abuse Dave - I thought higher of you than that
Would you like to dig out the thread where I put forward the variety of folk song and compared it to the pop repertoire (pretty much the same as I have just written)
Ot perhaps you would like me to put up the Martin Carthy quote which you and everybody else ignored ?
