GUEST,guest Johnny Does Trad music have a future? (37) Does Trad music have a future? 05 Sep 01

I don't mean to be the messenger of DOOM, BUT, the traditional music I grew up with seems to have taken a great turn around, like the POP of the 60's and 70's (or even the 80's and 90's)all has run its course and moves with the times. Then evolves!(to what?) The point I wish to make is -- Traditional music... song / dance / or instrumental.. it's all 'jazzed' up now-a-days. Few of the old songs remain like I first learned them, isn't 'traditional'music supposed to stay as it was all those years ago? Sessions are like a work out! every tune is likened to a JIG!! slow airs are at break-neck speed. I know in the past, when I went to a session if someone of age sang a song that was of an age and was of interest, you (out of respect)kept quiet and applauded. Now a-days it's as quick to get them a seat, a drink and get on with the REAL music, mad / hell for leather notes! anyone wish to comment? or am I just OLD? (at 40'ish)
