I've got to taske some issue with the "museum piece" view of folk music. I'd defy anyone to listen to the vital, vibrant music that Waterson:Carthy are performing and recording and call it museum pieces. Even though most of the songs they are sing are many generations old, they're still relevant to emotions and situations of today. Maybe it' to do more with the singer than the song???
