That's one huge, tangled knot you've tied yourself there, Tom. As Greg Stephens has told us many, many times before if you label a hippopotamus as a 'butterfly' it doesn't become one.

If I pay good money to go to a folk concert(or one of your gigs)then I expect to hear something resembling the music I've been listening to for the past 40 years; not free form jazz or soft rock or Beethoven's 5th. If I don't get what I paid for I will feel cheated. It's as simple as that and no amount of semantic knot tying will persuade me otherwise.
