Thread Name: Is there a future for traditional music
Subject: RE: Is there a future for traditional music
Traditional music has a big future, it ebbs and flows like the tides, however, and keeps reinventing itself...Look at the folk revival of the 60's...a lot of the recorded material was rather primative, (which was nice...!!) and many artists took those songs and reworked them into a more modern form, (which was also nice...) so we then had the choice of the traditional (pure) form, and then the artists interpretations, which made for a tremendous amount of excitement...those days will be back for sure...i think it is headed that way again...DK
