"And put a great many more off of it ..."

You see, there it is again, that same negativie put down, over and over, which seems to always come from the traditional world, eh, Irene.

Show of Hands have the biggest amount of fans on folk circuit, to The Oysterband...possibly...and that says it all.
As I said before, they don't need me to sell their music, they do that themselves..but I was pleased if *anyone* found their way to their music because of things I'd written.

Tell me though, Irene, does it make you feel good to come out with things like that? I realise that you and Ralphie are good friends, and that your take on folk music is very serious, but not everyone's is, and there's nowt wrong with that. We all love the music for very different reasons, but your reason isn't better than mine, you know.

I'll leave you guys to it, this thread is going nowhere, except down, down, deeper and down, into the same old, same old...
