GUEST,jim bainbridge Hope for folk music - Jon Doran! (262* d) RE: Hope for folk music - Jon Doran! 23 May 20


Jim,
   what I was saying was not to denigrate old codgers everywhere, I benefited from the EXAMPLE of older singers rather than their advice- I found in many cases it was THEY who needed advice about how to handle newfound fame!

I was just saying there is a vast amount of material ON TOP of what we were aware of in the early days. Also that we can state our view of the music, as you have consistently, but it's up to younger folk to either listen or not & go from there- they have the tools.
I have a different view of the music, but we won't go into that- things have to change, and over the years we've never been able to close off our music from the crass end of the commercial world as I think we'd both prefer.
However there are changes coming everywhere & maybe in the world of folk music, maybe with all its horrors, Covid 19 will do the job for us & set us all on a different route?
I'll continue this theme (if necessary) on the thread suggested by Jeri.
ps- my local pub/brewery in Scotland will deliver 12x half litre bottles of his own brew for 25 - will Guinness not do that? - maybe not the price, but it's the Covid equivalent of the milk round- it doesn't come on the NHS unfortunately
