Thread Name: Culture doesn't include Trad Music
Subject: RE: Culture doesn't include Trad Music
As I might have said elsewhere - you can walk a lot of miles in the real world before you meet another folkie - and even further before you meet another traddy. Come to think of it, I don't think I've never met either in the real world that I didn't already know from that other elsewhere. This is very much the cultural underground we're talking about here - a handful of named & known individuals diligently & passionately keeping it afloat with a tireless dedication & flawless integrity which is not only a complete anathema to corporate culture (of any stripe) but a large part of the appeal for recalcitrant feral reprobates like me. Once it gets too glossy I find I very quickly lose interest!
