I totally agree (although you have to catch them at a time between filling in expenses forms!). I too don't want to sound like a BNP party member but I do think that a greater awareness of Trad English Folk would help a lot in these culturally aimless times.

I recently joined a Morris Side (Bollin Morris) as a musician and it occurs to me that in these excercise conscious days, Morris Dancing is a great way of working out. Perhaps that would be a way encouraging more people to join in.
