|GUEST,vectis||UK attitudes to folk music (97* d)||RE: BS: UK attitudes to folk music||21 Sep 03|
My personal opinion is that calling traditional music and song "folk" is part of the problem. I always say I perform traditional music. The normal response from Joe Public is interest because they don't know what 'traditional English Music' is. Folk has gained too many negative connotations through the press etc to be interesting to non-affecionadoes.
