Thread Name: how important is the label traditional singer?
Subject: RE: how important is the label traditional singer?
How important is the label "traditional singer"? - Not important at all - it is a contrived description.
You could say "He /she usually sings traditional songs" - but even then - most people I know who have this silly description foisted upon them, enjoy a pint and a sing song with other forms / types of music.It's a silly label - it fully embraces that - holier than thou mentality.
