Subject: RE: Review: The Folk Handbook
all I can say is, it wouldn't baffle you if you listened to more non folk English people's reaction to ethnic style English folk music.. Ireland's got it right, you wouldn't be surprised if Daniel O'Donnel did a single with the Chieftains.
whereas every populariser in England from bert jansch to The spinners and now this Rusby woman, get it in the neck from the 'this is not folk music' brigade. i mean you wouldn't want them living next door to you, but live and let live....
Perhaps you should try a bit of wifty wafty with few snigger snoggers yourself Diane.
