Hi Ruth! I listen to lots of traditional music by young people - its probably what gets the most airplay in my house and it's really brilliant that it's happening. But here in central Manchester there are sod all traditional music events, and those that do happen, such as Les's lovely singaround here in Chorlton, are mainly populated by people quite a bit older than me (and I'm 44...). Lots and lots of young people - what someone I was talking the other day calls 'fashionable fake folkies' - here in Manchester go to these sort of nu-folk nights though, often to see unsigned local acts. It's very healthy, but exists in a parallel universe at present... and one that probably sees forums like this as 'the man'!
