Subject: RE: Folklore: Glastonbury thorn destroyed
Didn't you say you were reading The Imagined Village for the second time, Les? Once was enough for me! Not sure about trust, but it just about finished off my Folk Faith. I'm even putting off reading my recently borrowed copy of Fake Song in favour of the Miles Davis Autobiography for light relief... Personally, I find it a lot easier to believe in The Glastonbury Thorn legend than I do in the 1954 Definition and other shibboleths of a revival which was nothing sort of wholesale cultural revision.
