Subject: RE: The current state of folk music in UK
I've just woken up from my first decent sleep all week...

Wake up routine ..

check phone for messages
kettle on
check mudcat for any new stimulating posts
and to see what the obsesssive row of the day is,
and which mudcatter is behaving like a nutter...
look out window for signs of zombie apocalypse
cheese sandwich
BBC news
Face up to coping with demands of mother's dementia..
Look sadly at guitars and amps gathering dust....
Look in on mudcat between phone calls, kitchen and lavatory visits...
Mudcat punctuates the day and keeps my mind ticking over on folk music related topics
while I consider my own recordings if I ever get time back to get on with my own life..

To me as an isolated individual
thst is The current state of folk music in UK...

Folk music is made up of individuals and how they relate to the music...
After that comes all the bollocks that feeds arguements about clubs
and University researchers...

Oh for a simple polite thread about banjo strings or capos..
But it's mudcat, you know there will be an obsesive nutter
with entrenched views even on string technology...
Selling your soul to the corporate string industry, or making them your self the traditional way
out of cat gut and fence wire...

Btw Jim.. not telling you to shut up,
just asking you to be a bit more coherent sometimes,
so we know what you are going on about...
Effective communication is essential when we have busy demanding lives
and lttle time to uravel and second guess the state of minds
of distant internet mates...
