Thread Name: Our ghastly folk tradition
Subject: RE: Our ghastly folk tradition
most of us have developed immunity to the venom.

Glueman - you miss the point. No one pays Richard and I. We have done folk music , cos we want to, cos it means a lot to us.

Thats why we get ratty with people who consign our work to the scrap heap - we know its never even had a decent listen.

Personally I don't give a fig or a fart about the 1954 definition of folk music. I think tory media hogs who get on telly when there should be folkmusic on there, are perceived as the common enemy by both of us.
