GUEST,jim bainbridge The current state of folk music in UK (2105* d) RE: The current state of folk music in UK 17 Dec 19


Agreed, Dick, we have a rather different approach to the music, folk or otherwise & that's fine by me too- Happy New Year... had great times in West Cork years ago but I won't be at Ballydehob next year either...

Vic, I didn't know that Scan played 'Puppet on a String' & it just proves my point, thanks.
The Marsden Rattlers attended the Durham Miners' Gala in July 1968 where the favourite tune played by the brass bands was the very same one    . It entered our repertoire & we were recorded playing it by Bill Leader a few weeks later at the 3rd TMSA traditional festival in Blairgowrie.
We took it as a compliment from Bill that he regarded our efforts as being worthy of inclusion on the Topic LP 'Festival at Blairgowrie' alongside such Scottish traditional icons as Mary Brooksbank & John 'Hoddan' MacDonald.... no blinkers on Bill....
