Thread Name: BS: why Mudcat?
Subject: RE: BS: why Mudcat?
Most people who are interested in folk music have a social conscience, a base for being interested in folk music to begin with. Mudcat offers a chance to exercise that "conscience" by allowing views to be expressed that you won't find on other blogs particularly run by Google or Outlook Express. On Mudcat, no holds barred discussions can occur and many are illuminating if sometimes contentious.

Folk music in my opinion is not just about "scalp collecting". It's about being involved in a process that includes views of a social nature.
