Cheers chaps. The way I feel about it is that I very much enjoyed the Kipper Family when I was a kid, but I suppose I understand what she says when she talks about something sacred, something she loved as a cause and a calling, having the mick taken out of it. She also said that what really killed them (as a place where everyone felt the same way about what was supposed to happen there, that is, not that killed them off) as far as she was concerned was not the fact that these people were funny, it was the fact that they seemed to be using the folk scene as a springboard; most of them left the clubs and never looked back (Jasper Carrot, Billy Connolly, Barbra Dickson), leaving it bereft, with the mick taken, as it were. I enjoy a good parody as well; in fact I can say with impunity that I have seen more parodies in folk clubs than serious "traditional" songs (old ones)-is that what she's talking about?
