Thread Name: What Folk Revival?
Subject: RE: What Folk Revival?
I don't think there is anything wrong with preserving things.
For example, the Classical music world is based on preserving music.
There is more concert hall time devoted to the music of Mozart than any other composer. And, that's not an updated version of Mozart! Heaven forbid!
Early Music is also thriving. And don't tell practioners of that style of music that they should include more modern sounds otherwise they're are likely to flatten you with a crumhorn!
