Hmmmm. Interesting thread.
Surely the point is that EFDSS is actually trying to do something?
Doing stuff rather doing nothing has got to be good in my book. If you like what they are doing then support it. If you don't like it then either ignore it, or get in there and change it from inside.
I feel for those running EFDSS - being the subject of continual sniping whatever they try to do is very demoralising and wearing. Why don't folks just ignore all those emotive words like 'English', 'Folk', 'Dance' and 'Song' - it only stirs up trouble. Look at what they are trying to do overall. Are they trying to preserve and promote at least some of the music we all love? I think the answer is 'Yes', so more power to their elbow.
