Thread Name: Moulettes - not folk say gatekeepers
Subject: RE: Moulettes – not folk say gatekeepers
My band Flaming June are supporting the Moulettes at Cambridge. We're kind of on the fringe of "folk" too as we have a fiddle & a tenor whistle & a lot of our songs tell a story. We go down well at Folk Clubs & have played at Ely Folk Festival. We're not just folk though, any more than the Moulettes are & also played at a Rock Festival in 2010. Some people always like to pigeonhole bands into a set genre. Shame they've been turned down for the magazines though. I really love their music and I know that a majority of "folk" audiences would love it too. Maybe not the traditionalists though....
