Thread Name: Vaughan Williams Memorial Library & its importance
Subject: TheVWML and its importance
The VWML is situated at C Sharp house in London, how important is it to the 21 century English folk revival?.
Many contemporary songs are now being written and sung at Folk festivals and clubs, that owe nothing to the VWML, many traditional songs can be sourced on the net at sites such as this and elsewhere.
its[VWML] geographical location is convenient for some but not for others.
this thread is posing a question?it is not attacking the EFDSS.
The VWML is IMO a useful resource, particularly as it is now online, but how many other revival singers use it or find it useful?
should it include contemporary songs ? or should it become the equivalent of a library museum?
