"Folk song is a living museum of former times"

Well, no. A museum curator tries to preserve history and respect the truth. Music reflects what people thought (sometimes). It also reflects what composers thought would sell and what drunks thought was funny.

Meanwhile, I'm a free citizen of the free world, and I refuse to use my time, money and instruments to promote or condone bad things.
