GUEST,Santa Folk Music Dying? (97* d) RE: Folk Music Dying? 09 Jun 03


Typo. For "Brass Money" read "Brass Monkey" the band. Then the following comments about Carthy and Kirkpatrick makes sense, as leading members of the band.

I don't really claim it as an "argument" as such - just pointing out something that is true. There are indeed ways around it - but are they ethical? What sort of arrogance is it that claims "You play some good music, therefore you must let me play it too."? I might think that open-ness in such matters is a good thing, but does that make it right for me to over-ride the wishes of the creators and owners of the tradition?

Not only a Folk Police but a Folk Fuehrer - you MUST let other people play your tune!
