Am I missing something here? She also said: "this "tradition"... It hasn't actually existed for a century, if it ever really did." AND "my grandfather was a traditional musician... He and his mates continued to perform music among themselves till his death in 1959."

It only serves to confuse if you use the same terminology for two different things at the same time - THAT's the point.
