Thread Name: Copper Family Article
Subject: RE: Copper Family Article
Thanks for the article and the clicky, Joe.

BTW, I think Maggie O'Hanlon, the letter writer, is misguided. Having read the April 25th article, I agree that the Coppers were a bizarre choice to support an indie rock band. This judgment doesn't mean the Coppers are bizarre; in fact, I rather think the other band is stranger. But surely the writer's point was that the combination was bizarre, not either of the bands on their own. Would you have Steeleye Span open for the Sex Pistols?

On the other hand, to call the Coppers' contribution to English folksong "small but significant", that's belittling!
