GUEST,eliza c Seth Lakeman - Folk Hero! (304* d) RE: Seth Lakeman - Folk Hero! 07 Jul 08

Definitions are for shop-keepers, seeking to oust someone from the scene they grew up in out of personal taste is narcissism. I was brought up to believe in solidarity. If it's rubbish, fine, don't buy it. But some folks here clearly place worth on their personal definition and keep him out of it in some prurient cathartic excercise. I'm tired of people questioning young performers' motives simply because they work differently from previous generations. It is not confined to this thread, this is a straw and camel's back moment for me.
Sod it. I'll be the first to come clean. We're all in it for the money, the millions that can be made from folk music.
Some svengali is running us all like puppets and keeping me and Seth and Rachel Unthank in all that gold and diamonds we clearly flaunt all the time. And we love it, because our parents clearly failed to instil any love for tradition in us, and we stick around on the folk scene, just to push it in your faces how shallow we are, hahaha all the way to the bank. Nothing to do with tradition or art or passion. Yep.
whoo-hoo! 'bye suckers!
