Thread Name: Our ghastly folk tradition
Subject: RE: Our ghastly folk tradition
And I said that if there is no "f*lk scene" in your area you should be bloody glad.
And out of line? It's you that has stepped that way by dissing dance. You don't have to do it if you don't want to. You could play for it or at least respect it for the important basis of the tradarts that it is.
I'm not "chipping in" any more, Tom. As I said, this thread is pants. Entirely pointless except to show the sideline knockers that they are right to rubbish ":f*lkies" for their ridiculous defensive attitudes towards the indefensible.
Funnily enough I was talking only last night to a musician who has moved away to a slightly unusual location without a "scene" where, to his relief, he is regarded purely as just that, a musician along with all others of all genres.
If music has a duty it is for its exponents to use and develop it in their communities, NOT to behave in such a way as to let it disappear up their own backsides.
