Subject: RE: Balcombe Protest Asking For Musicians
Vic, I agree absolutely. In fact I'd go further and say that the entire folk tradition is political. It is political because according to the powers who rule and divide us, we the plebs are incapable of making or appreciating anything which is grand or noble, or capable of expressing fine feelings; in short, anything which could be defined as art.

Sorry Will, but the Joe Heaneys, the Lizzie Higgins's, the Roscoe Holcombs of this world punched a very large hole in that argument long ago.

Vic. See you at Whitby, where we will doubtless engage in a few political acts together.
