Thread Name: What is The Tradition?
Subject: RE: What is The Tradition?
Revival is not a put down, it's a valuable term that is recognised as a modern take on music that went before, once the conditions that gave rise to it no longer obtained.
It's just a shorthand so people understand and appreciate what they're doing in the right context and don't pretend they're plugged straight into the the past.
