Thread Name: The current state of folk music in UK
Subject: RE: The current state of folk music in UK
"Jim - yeah.. but.. this thread aint about Ireland..."
Then why raise libraries ?
Ireland is an example of how the fortunes of traditional music can be turned when everybody thought it was finished
Our work shows that English and Irish traditions are very similar - dying scene can learn from a growing one - surely ?
I believe Ireland can learn from Britain - nowadays that seems to be confined to what to avoid
