Thread Name: Complex arrangments of traditional music
Subject: RE: Complex arrangments of traditional music
Surely there is ample justification for both complex and simple arrangements as long as performers and listeners derive pleasure from it. Some music can be seen as over-complicated and some over-simplistic, but without those extremes there would be precious little inbetween to feel comfortable with. The variation ensures the survival we all desire of 'folk' music as the living form that it is, however vaguely defined.
