GUEST,eliza c '5000 Morris Dancers' (803* d) RE: '5000 Morris Dancers' 30 Aug 08


I know I'm just asking for it again, but WAV-you are being brought up on your lack of knowledge of living traditional music and the way that it works, not on your general qualifications.
The reason I challenge you is because I do know, and I have always been militant about these matters. You do not know enough to be a convincing ambassador. You irritate people with your methods and you don't have the necessary information to back them up. That's all. Put simply, you're not helping. Learn more, mate. About social skills as well as the thing you love, and then you'll be genuinely useful to the thing you love. Don't say you want to see a green man and then say actually, I don't even know what that entails. That's tokenism. It's extraordinarily shallow. Is that our good English culture?
5,000 Morris dancers and the upside down lady and the bloke from Viz would definitely be something I would go and see. Because an important part of our good English culture is a good sense of humour.
   Don't be like the joke I just heard...why do folk singers put their fingers in their ears? Because they only want to hear themselves.
