Subject: RE: Folk Performers Association
I seem to have been confusing myself of late

This is the FPA (Folk Performers Accociation) which I would like to join

The UK Folk Club Network ~ has now decided on who to have in their "Steering Team" to no doubt bring the Folk Clubs in to line!

I appear to have been warned off posting with them, and I better shut up now! Good luck to 'em!

I am interested in collecting, learning and singing mainly traditional songs (anyone near Sth Yorks interested in singing harmonies??)or backing?

My recent 49 2CD recordings with words and notes is available (complete with typos!)named English Traditionalist songs

There does seem to be a move in English folk clubs away from The Tradition, this area in Scotland and Ireland (I have Cable TV) is thriving and we do seem to be at odds with them ~ I can't understand this and don't want a discussion on it either, just support for the English Traditional songs and music as a jumping off point to new songs in "the tradition"

I am NOT an out and out traditional song person as has been suggested in another place to the exclusion of others

I do think that agencies have their place, which is not in yer face!

I am annoyed at certain comments that have been made elswhere (sorry wrong place I know!) Do not ask!!
