Big Al Whittle The current state of folk music in UK (2105* d) RE: The current state of folk music in UK 27 Nov 19


Well as I say - its your music. The folk clubs over the years have made me understand that my music isn't folk.

I really think you need to focus, decide what is your music - and get it politicised.

In Spain and Ireland, the governments have used their folk music to promote their countries. The government have done it for them.

But I don't see anything like that afoot in England. I think you will have to do it for yourselves.
