Thread Name: Our ghastly folk tradition
Subject: RE: Our ghastly folk tradition
"Now perhaps his description of a traditional singer was meant humourously and perhaps he could apologise for that if enough pressure was applied to him."
But Matthew Parris won't apologize, he more than likely doesn't see that he should because I believe that he has no liking for The Tradition/folk music/f**k music or whatever you want to call it. Indded, Teribus is right; how can you apologize to music? You can say your sorry to a singer if that singer is offended and if you feel you need to apologize; but the actually music itself? I believe I said in a previous post, the music will survive one person's highly subjective opinion.
