Subject: RE: BS: BNP and folk music
I expect one problem could be that the 'world music' ( can't stand that term) scene is very much thriving in parts of UK, ok in cities anyway, there are probably festivals of one kind or another, big and small where we can go and watch the most wonderful performers from many countries, week in and week out.

Why would they want to play in a mostly inclusive environment that has never included them? Shouldn't the home grown folk groups be the ones to try and intergrate into the already established world music scene.

Although I agree in principle with what you are suggesting.
