Frank Hamilton. "Let's know more about English traditional culture and let it enlighten the way and turn the rock over to reveal the roaches."
I agree absolutely. The more one looks at the folk culture of any nation, the more one realises how utterly unrepresentative of that nation it really is. EG., English folk culture is heavily permeated by Scots and Irish influences, to say nothing of influences from mainland Europe.
To further muddy the waters, nationalists have been doctoring and manipulating "native" folk culture for centuries, whilst passing it off as the real thing.
