Here I go again, because I can't help myself...eyup j(i)m...you too eh...
David, I've spent twenty years in the research and promotion of English traditional music, and one of the things I have always had to contend with, in frustration and fury, is peoples' assertions that anyone interested in such things could only be a weirdo and/or a borderline racist/nationalist.
There have often been very good discussions on this messageboard about English traditional music despite the fact that it was not set up as a folky board, and I have often learned a lot just by lurking.
Not any more. You have hijacked this subject here and made it a laughing stock once again. Spoons for God's sake????!!!! Thanks a frigging bunch. Ignorant, ignorant man. Rubbish indeed.
