Thread Name: 1954 and All That - defining folk music
Subject: RE: 1954 and All That - defining folk music
what I actually said was
"I was going to throw a spanner, regarding the great hurdy-gurdy player, Nigel Eaton (he late of Blowzabella) playing for Loreena McKennit, AND Robert Plant and Jimmy Page".

Of course the latter two definitely don't fit into the trad folk idiom, for which I am eternally grateful.

Folk music ain't a museum piece or yer grandmothers clock sitting on the mantlepiece, collecting dust, it's a living, vibrant, and, I hope, an ever evolving music.
You want museum pieces? Go the V & A.
