Everything is fine within the state of folkmusic
Al, it is clear that some of those who fit the "1968 definition" don't get as many bookings as you and (presumably) they think they deserve.
Apart from that - what do you think is wrong with the state of folkmusic for you clearly do seem to think that.
Lack of musicians? Lack of singers? Lack of young people coming through? Too many old people, failure of attendances.
What is it that you think is wrong?
