Thread Name: What is The Tradition?
Subject: RE: What is The Tradition?
I visited a local music sesh yesterday.
I'd not been at this venue for about 9/10 years.
Well the tiny gathering of 3 musicians + a bloke with guitar doing an occasional song, performed all the same sets as they'd done on my previous times there
Now I recall why I stopped going before.
From this example, I'm wondering if some sense of the meaning of 'Traditional' is never to learn any other stuff & keep playing the same tunes & sets ad infinitum?
