Big Al Whittle Colin Irwin on Peter Bellamy (51* d) RE: Colin Irwin on Peter Bellamy 21 Mar 21


From the mid 1960's we have been riven by factionalism - almost to the point of extinction

I never really know how to react. I suppose its good that people have strong opinions. Many MOR visitors to folk clubs found Peter Bellamy's approach to folk song difficult to appreciate. My in laws certainly did.

On the other hand, I loved the ambitious nature of his approach. The stuff with Kipling and The Transports.

I think as the appeal of folk music drifted out of the public domain, the fighting over the entrails got bloodier and more savage.
According to that Lewin Davies film, twas ever thus. I think maybe we're too closeto comprehend fully all the forces at work.
