Jeri 10 of the Most Disturbing Folk Songs - BBC (86* d) RE: 10 of the Most Disturbing Folk Songs - BBC 16 Oct 21


As to "don't care 2 hoots what songs are about": no one has EVER walked out of a performance because they didn't like what the songs were about? And they've never started threads in various internet places to complain about those performers? (Those were rhetorical.)

I don't know, Bonz. I think you're trying to turn this into a BS fight, but...
Quite a few people used to go to Dick Gaughan's gigs, because the music was great, but his diatribes were just as impressive. I bought, at least, one book because of what he said.

People go to folk clubs/concerts/venues to be entertained, AND to be inspired, both emotionally and intellectually. They make us feel. They make us think.
