Thread Name: Contemporary Traditional Scottish Music?
Subject: RE: Contemporary Traditional Scottish Music?
Will - I have great respect for you as an individual musician and mentor..

..and I'm very sparing and selective with respect...

Ake, despite being a politically dubious pariah,
can occasionally make points worth considering,
that should not just be dismissed out of hand
because of who he is and what he says on certain sensitive social issues...

I also get the impression that middle class folkies champion Trad Folk's history
as the music of the common people,
while finding real working class folks to be too chavvy and vulgar
for their delicate sensitivities...
