Thread Name: What is The Tradition?
Subject: RE: What is The Tradition?
What 'thought crimes' are you going accuse those of us who give the 'wrong' answers of?

I started this thread in a dream & I'm still sleepwalking in the sweetest of folk-dreams after our Traditional Monday-After-Fylde jaunt to Southport, there to relax & scour antiquarian bookshops & walk the pier and spend a small fortune on the vintage penny-falls and one-arm bandits.

As I've said elsewhere, as far as I'm concerned all music can be folk music (depending on human context); and quote once again the aims of International Council for Traditional Music: to further the study, practice, documentation, preservation and dissemination of traditional music, including folk, popular, classical and urban music, and dance of all countries.

Just passing; at my in-laws for soup and cake on our way to The Steamer for the Fylde survivors sing tonight.
