Thread Name: Proper Music?
Subject: RE: Proper Music?
I did wonder about useing the word 'proper'. It does however sum up entirely the attitude I am referring to here in the UK.

If you see a music festival advertised, it means a classical music festival. A music club, means a classical music club. Grants and subsidies are almost entirely for classical music.

How different here would the public perception of folk music be if it received just a fraction of the radio exposure and funds provided for classical music and in particular opera?
