Subject: RE: McColl or Harry Lauder-Jock Hawk's Adventures
There's someting about Mudcatters. Vituperation never seems far away. The "critique" I found particularly laughable was the "banjo".

If there ever was a "golden age" of folk-music, do you think that if a saxophone had been lying around nobody would have played it?

I do believe that the banjo (and we all know it's origins) is a very good fit for many of our traditional songs.
