Don T,
I think you misunderstood Bill D's comments. He hasn't told anyone to go away, he hasn't told any clubs what to play, or really said anything to make you feel unwanted. You'll have to take responsibility for that yourself.

I don't think anyone in this discussion is particularly intolerant toward newly written music. Most everybody likes a wide range of music, new and old. The point that is being made is that the old stuff is different than the new stuff, and some of us like it better. This doesn't mean we are coming down on you for liking something different than we like.

Try to understand that the fact that you don't seem to perceive the difference between traditional folk music and modern songwriter songs doesn't mean there isn't one.
