Subject: RE: BS: BNP and folk music
I think it is down to the predominantly white organisers of folk activities to make a positive effort to seek out folk music wherever it is performed and invite its practioners to the events, whether domestic,pub, club or festivala. Invite them socially, or offer to book them, according to how the muscians are operating(or wish to operate). That way, the folk scene will reflect what traditional folk music is performed here. Which, surely, is the idea? Isn't it?(OK I admit theat is not the idea at the moment, I would just like it to be).
