GUEST,jim bainbridge traditional music is for entertaining (138* d) RE: traditional music is for entertaining 26 Sep 19

I think my point about rambling introductions was clarified well by Derrick, but I cannot follow how someone with your obvious intelligence, Jim C, can be so vitriolic about anyone at all?
it can't be good for you!

Such condemnation is illogical & almost rabid & must be more deep- rooted than some incident from years ago- I assume due to Bob's views on MacColl et al, but it surely is time you became a bit more objective about it all- I'm glad that YOU are not compiling the HISTORY OF FOLK MUSIC- it could be a little biased & potentially send college folk students in a doubtful direction if your views were set in stone!!
I recall that Vic Smith once compiled a collection of anecdotes about MacColl, and I would have a few, but I can accept to see that the man achieved a lot in his life.
Bob's contribution has been in a quite different sector of our music, and I accept the fact that Bob will not be running a course on tact & diplomacy.
I don't intend to rake over events of years ago, but to suggest that Bob Davenport is not one of the most influential figures of the early revival is not only dishonest, but ridiculous.
