Thread Name: Reflections/Criticism of Peter Kennedy
Subject: RE: Reflections/Criticism of Peter Kennedy
This discussion will achieve nothing positive, it wont prevent rogues from operating on the folk scene,.
I can understand the frustrations of more scrupulous collectors and the problems they can encounter due to insentivity etc.I repeat there are people much worse than Peter Kennedy. at least he made his work available,[unlike someone resident in yorkshire]             and to me its been very useful, I agree Seamus Ennis and Bob Copper and many others behaved better and are more important[ as they didnt adulterate part of their work].
    sadly I dont think this discussion will put off the unscrupulous,.
However with the use of the computer they can be perhaps exposed more quickly. in the meantime its important to Remember Peter Kennedys good points   I believe most of Peter Kennedys books and most of his written collection is unadulterated and very useful, He is not here to defend himself, can he not be left to rest in peace.
