"I think we just need to accept that while there are people with their heads firmly planted in the past "
Folk, like much of classical, jazz, theatre Blues, is of the past
That's what you sign on for

"No insult at all Jim, perchance a rather insightful description of your attitude"
rose coloure glasses to someone who has spantgetting on fidor sixty years in the game, from asomeone who urefuses to offer any arguments is deeply insulting
If I bothered about this sort of thing it would also be deeply hurtful - fortunately for both of us, I don't
You have offered no argument - you have offered no alternative description of what you mean by folk songs - just dismissive insults - fine
I think you make my point for me far better than I can
Not one of you acknowledges or denies the importance of the music you have swept aside to make for..... whatever
I wonder why I keep seeing pictures of the state we have left our planet in for our kids....
Nevr mind - yo all have ,Pseudonymous on your sisde
That should ease your consciences a little
