Ditto that thought.
I've become aware of some of the 'debate' about what constitutes 'traditional singing' or proper folk form or whatnot, I believe that it is highly worthy of some focus and form via which to communicate it to those who are inerested.

I dunno, with the increased interest in all things English (albeit partly fueled by the murkier undercurrents of Nationalism) and with the upsurge of young vibrant folk artists, I see a real opportunity (if utilised well, for Traditional English Singing to gain a much sounder footing in the awareness and interest of a broader spectrum of people. As indeed it aught to.
