Big Al Whittle The current state of folk music in UK (2105* d) RE: The current state of folk music in UK 25 Oct 19


Well I agree, we can't immerse ourself in past glories.

However Froots has bit the dust mainly because of its dogged unshakeable belief that we had nothing much to offer compared to the Zulu's, Mexicans, Norwegians etc.

Everyday we get told we don't sing as well, organise ourselves as well, play our instruments as well as the Irish.

If we are to make any progress, we can't be lamenting what we are not. We have to concentrate on the many positive attributes that we do possess.

its not a competition, and snidey negative put downs of how we conduct ourselves will not help. If we conduct ourselves differently from other countries, that's our privilege - and that is what we must work with and maximise.
