Well, they are a professional dance band, and I guess whatever draws the crowds is what they play. We're going to get into the 'what is folk' argument here, but I shall damn the devil and say it anyway.....

Folk is not a stagnant pond where things suffocate. It's a flowing river. It picks up stuff and discards it along the way, but it's still a living river.

You said it yourself Peter Standing, they are a MODERN band....
