Subject: RE: Compering/ MCing at a folk club
A good question Liz and one that caused more than a little trouble. The Club split on this, one group, "The Tradies" held that the truosers should never be cleaned on the grounds that with advances in DNA technology, the possibility of clonning could become a reality. The "Modernisers", Blairites to a person, maintained that we should commit to the living tradition as EM did himself and have the trousers not only cleaned but have the legs re-styled in the "Boot-cut" fashion.
This led to a split in the club and now 3 pairs of trousers exist but we have the only genuine pair. I trust none of this is made public.
