Thread Name: how important is the label traditional singer?
Subject: RE: how important is the label traditional singer?
Captain - I was not questioning Bob Roberts whom I booked at a folk club I helped to run a number of times.

I question that whoever wrote "The Oily RIg" that it could ever be regarded as traditional; the idea that you suggested - that Bob wanted to pass it off as "traditional" is thus ludicrous. The suggestion about collectors is equally ludicrous.

Finally I would like to hear how you believe that Bob Roberts is a traditional and a revival singer at the same time.
