Thread Name: Contemporary Traditional Scottish Music?
Subject: RE: Contemporary Traditional Scottish Music?
Oh I get out alright Will and at most venues the focal point is the CD stall. This after paying over the odds to hear uninspiring, introverted rubbish, without any audience participation of any kind, other than the surrendering of their cash.
Fortunately,(for some performers) the audiences of today seem to comprise of an "arty, middle class intelligencia", who have been conditioned into the acceptance of masochism.
I have noted your comments and in my opinion the stuff produced by many (not all)of todays performers is an insult to traditional and contemporary music.....and the real characters who brought it back to the people.
Tough, but true.
