Subject: RE: how important is the label traditional singer?
very well put Brian.

the oral/aural process continues. sometimes we don't need to qualify the word traditional, but sometimes we really should.

these distinctions can be crucial, and a habit of checking to see if an adjective would be helpful, would itself be helpful.
