Thread Name: Our ghastly folk tradition
Subject: RE: Our ghastly folk tradition
In 1968 I was trying to play like Jimi Hendrix AND like Martin Carthy.
Why not? They were both doing new and exciting things with music.
I saw (and still don't see) any reason to discriminate and separate them out.
Of course, you couldn't ask the former his opinion nowadays.
But I'm pretty damn sure Martin Carthy agrees.
You could ask him at your workshop.
