Thread Name: Types of folk music you like or dislike
Subject: RE: Types of folk music you like or dislike
I may also be unusual on the Mudcat in that I'm not a big fan of Irish sessions. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy some of the music well enough but I like more English and Scottish tunes and, to a certain extent, East European music. Could be in the genes I suppose but while I do have a little Irish in me, I have no Scottish blood at all. Yet I love the music. And the whisky but that's another story:-) The best session I ever heard (I don't join in. Not good enough) was at the Peveril of the Peak in Manchester where the Music was from all over the world. A sadly departed friend of mine, John Snelson (Pied Piper on here) had a hand in that one. Just out of interest.
