Grab Our ghastly folk tradition (636* d) RE: Our ghastly folk tradition 31 Mar 08


Yes I did, Tom.

Like I said, my guitarist friend reckons Kate Bush sounds like mating cats. He's not cloth-eared, he just doesn't like how her voice sounds. Me, I'd leave the pub if I was faced with an evening of that bloke singing - it doesn't necessarily make me cloth-eared, just someone who doesn't like that type of voice. And like it or not, that vocal accent *is* the type irrevocably associated with trad folk.

In that same programme, there was a clip from Westminster of an MP asking why money wasn't spent on brass bands and jazz. When he asked why money wasn't spent on jazz, one MP could clearly be heard replying "Because it's appalling rubbish" (if I can remember the exact words). Did anyone feel the need to write to their MPs about that one?

Graham.
