GUEST,Dan young folk tradition undermining folk (281* d) RE: young folk tradition undermining folk 27 Jun 07

This may be hard to take but I wish to point out that if Folk has a bad rep and is subject to negative streotypes it is YOUR fault. Don't blame the young, blame the generation of the 70s and 80s who alienated the audiences after the 'boom years' in the first place.

In the last few years a generation of artists, journalists, workshop leaders and dancers under 35 have managed to almost turn around the perception of folk music in this country to the wider world. All you lot can do is moan about it.

There is another folk revival happening and you are not invited. You had your chance and you wasted it. Sorry.
