Perhaps it would be another legacy -if all the disparate sections of the British Isles folk music community buried their differences and became a unified artistic movement again. The traddies, the singer/songer writers/, the the 'that really isn't folk music' crowd, the flash musician gunslingers.
In a way we all felt ourselves become one when Bert picked up his guitar and gave us his idiosyncratic version of folk music. If we all could start living tolerantly and showed good manners to each other = perhaps that would be the best way of honouring his memory.
