GUEST,S.T.M. BBC Folk Awards Demo 7th Feb (104* d) RE: BBC Folk Awards Demo 7th Feb 09 Feb 11

"..."There are, of course, many ways of accompanying a song but, if we are to accompany traditionally- unaccompanied English, e.g., folk-songs, we should surely keep it light" (here)."

Or just do it however the hell you want so that other people can enjoy it...

Personally, I love listening to traditional folk songs being sung unaccompanied. However, I also enjoy dancing and listening to new arrangements of old tunes. I don't see why this is such a crime. The likes of Bellowhead are doing a lot for traditional music recently, whether you like it or not.
