Subject: RE: The current state of folk music in UK
Raggy - Did you put them on? Can you see the truth now? I hope so

I'm not sure whether to start another thread or put my questions here. It's both relevant but at the same time tangential.

From my end I don't have the same urge to polarise discussion that people seem to love here. And when I saw voice of the people I thought I was on a Brexit thread. It has the same passion to be RIGHT rather than to discuss. Jim, this is NOT directed at you - it is more general.

And I have just relistened to Walter Pardon from 1982 and realised that he was only a couple of years older than I am now. Also realised that I've played various of those songs in different guises over time in various styles. It's the song at the end of the day

While I ponder it here's something a bit lighter - one of my favourite music based cartoons EVER
