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


"the Popularity of folk in the 60s and some of the 70s strikes me as a cultural blip, no more to be mourned than Bebop or ska reggae. "
Shame ion you Matt - these songs are timeless and they still resonate - far mor that the spit-out-when-you've finished pop pap
The oldest mentioned song in the folk repertoire was mentioned in the 13 hundreds and was still being sung into the mid seventies - wanna name a reggae or ska song that can match that ?
It's like saying Shakespeare's had his day
If we in the mid twentieth century could take as muuch pleasure as we did from centuries old songthen there's no reason that cannot continue to happen
If you don't like folk song and feel them irrelevant then stand aside for those who feel differently
What the hell are we posting to a site that describes itself aas mudcat does if the folk arts are "irrelevant"

"I have not made any personal insults"
The you'd better report the person who sent " As usual it is all bluster and noise" in your name
I've posted the link I referred to and you'v repeat your accusation that I am a liar
"I will continue to deny the comments attributed to me by Jim as long as he keeps making them up, Dick."
Haveing denied you insulted me, you've just done it again
I think we're finished here
Jim
