Thread Name: Vaughan Williams Memorial Library & its importance
Subject: RE: Vaughan Williams Memorial Library & its importance
I am entitled to an opinion, and my opinion which is based on experience of flying in and out of airports,is that transport connections to the Midlands are as good and in some cases better than they are to Camden town[ exception london heathrow].
It is as easy to get to the midlands from london gatwick, stansted london luton, AND birmingham, AND in some cases easier.
the point is that if it does not include contemporary songs it just becomes a museum, folk music is a living changing evolving music, it is not something that has to be preserved .
of course museums are necessary too, but should a library just be a museum piece?
it is not correct to suggest that I am suggesting it is filled with albums of contemporary songwriters cds.
including contemporary songs can be acheived in different ways other than including every singer songwriters cd.
