Thread Name: how important is the label traditional singer?
Subject: RE: how important is the label traditional singer?
ok ,Martin,apology accepted.
I would like to make it clear to everyone,that I never make posts when I am under the influence of alcohol.
I hope that if this thread has not achieved anything other than people visiting the musical traditions website,and learning about English/Scottish/ Irish/ Welsh dance and song,and singers like Bob Blake,it will have achieved something positive.
Those people that know me personally, know that I am a dedicated musician /singer,that I have a knowledge and love of traditional music,that like many other professional revivalist singers,I regard singing traditional material as a privilege,and as a labour of love .
Ewan Maccoll once said to me, I admire you,I couldnt do what you do,gigging on your own and coping with the loneliness of life on the road,Ewans words mean more to me,than any of the crap that gets thrown at me on this site.
