Thread Name: Reflections/Criticism of Peter Kennedy
Subject: RE: Reflections/Criticism of Peter Kennedy
In the same way that Jim Carroll knows little about the work of Moe Asch and Alan Lomax I know little of the work of Peter Kennedy - which is why I am not prepared to join in a slanging match about him.

There does however seem to be a general belief that there is loads of money to be made with recordings of folk musicians however obtained. Somehow I doubt it. And certainly not in the field of traditional musicians like Peter Kennedy recorded. However having said that, people should get their due.

Like you Jim I never owned a Folktrax record, do you Fred? And if not why not?

And you still have not made it plain why you feel I should not have reproduced your letter from Mustrad? I am genuinely puzzled since I assumed that it was in the public domain? Am I wrong?
