Subject: RE: Culture doesn't include Trad Music
Yeh. Bummer, that. Might depend on who has 'ownership' of it. (I told you've I've spent too much time on gov't committees!) In our case, it was the Societies some of which go back 100 years. Of course, where we have a number of societies, England has EFDSS; I wonder if they have a statement of entitlement, or ilk? Also, I think it was seen as a position statement in response to the globalization and commercialization of music. This, combined with the fact that Wales has a relatively small visible ethnic minority population might defuse some of the BNP worries.
