Subject: RE: The current state of folk music in UK
Thanks for everyone's continuing contributions to this thread - do try to keep it friendly though - it has become a bit fractious again recently.

Heard this on the Radio 2 Folk Show recently and it reminded me of the tremendous music being made by Offa Rex - a collaboration between Olivia Chaney and The Decemberists where they take folk songs and do rather wonderful things with them thus bringing them to the attention of a wider audience
