Subject: RE: Folklore: Folk Music for the Middle Class

However, even I find it silly sometimes (not always) when people with no experience of a way of life (fishing, coal mining, war etc) sing about it.

When someone who really knows sings, the effect is so much more exciting - eg. Linda Kelly and "the luckiest sailor" - shivers down spine - brrrr.

Does that mean I am confined to mediocrity?
