Thread Name: Folk Music for the Middle Class
Subject: RE: Folklore: Folk Music for the Middle Class
well you're right in a way TJ - the problem is, in England - people don't tend to tell middle class folksingers, who can effortlessly evoke an atmosphere of tedium to fuck off. they give them arts council grants to tour the world. they play them on the only nationally radio and tv programmes and ask them to lecture to future generations of middle class bores at our most respected universities.

i don't think you can have a class system over there - otherwise you'd know all about it.
