Subject: RE: BS: BNP and folk music
Must say Hidden England by Richard Todd is cracking stuff about English folk music.
The first thing it does is confirm that there is indeed such a thing as English Folk Music (anyone looking through the shelves of most high-street music stores could be forgiven for thinking that only the so-called 'Celtic-fringe' of Britain and other foreign nations possess such a thing).
It goes on to discuss good old English folk and the problems and issues that one encounters when trying to define the distinctions between one country's folk-music and that of their neighbours.
There is a smashing article, together with an essay introducing the folk-music of Copper Family, should act as a great source of information and inspiration for those familiar with or interested in discovering English folk-music.
Go on guys have a look at Hidden England, cracking good material to arouse your Patriotism.
