MBSGeorge Sidmouth Winter Reunion 2009 (207* d) RE: Sidmouth Winter Reunion 2009 25 Feb 09

I posted this a few minutes ago but it got eaten. I'm so pissed off I'll repeat it:

I don't give two hoots . . . we're all f*lkies

That's haunted me all day
"F*lkies" horrify me, both the word and the concept.
I wasn't even at Sidmouth, as previously noted, but suffered simultaneously just one GEFF in Camden Town, and that's one too many.
If you don't know the provenance of a tune or song, FIND OUT.
And never play or sing it out TILL YOU CAN.
Not hard.
But to fall short of these standards is to disrespect the music.
That's shabby behaviour and, as we move into Ash Wednesday, could count as a sin worse than no other.


If you want to continue being nasty go somewhere else and do it. I have been singing folk songs (mostly traditional which is why I don't know who wrote them!) since I was taught Danny Boy by my father around 25 years ago. I am not and have never intended to be a musician and therefore don't know and quite frankly don't care what particular tunes are called unless I like them and then I find out.

There are far worse things than being called a 'Folkie' so if you find us so offensive then don't associate yourself with this site and please leave my thread!

Thank you.
