Subject: RE: The current state of folk music in UK
Jim - your generation of folk activists have layed the foundation for mine,
and those to come..

Thank you...

Now it's up to us to carry on your work.
You can influence how we do it to some extent.
We can learn from your precedence..
You can suggest how you would prefer we should do it..

But ultimately it's up to us,
and those who follow on after replacing all of us...

You let on your age earlier in this thread,
so I know when I was born you could have been a Teddy Boy or Beatnik,
or even a young Square...
You are just old enought to be my d.. uncle..

But despite the 18 years diference, we are both categorised as baby boomers...

None of us liked being dictated to and controlled by grown ups,
and in our final decades..
we still don't..

Just rest assured this new lot of millenials
will carry on the folk music torch..
whether you like what they do with it,
or I like it either...

My generation faught the punk wars,
and yet these ungrateful young f@ckers
tell us to stuff our electric guitars
while they all flock to take up the bloody ukelele...!!!???
