Subject: RE: Folk & Roots event at Hessle Town Hall-8 Sept
Hear, hear Nick. I'm getting sick to the back teeth of people like 'guest' who constantly snipe at new music and imply they're somehow on a higher plane than the rest of us because they think they know all about 'trad' music. As has been stated, what is 'trad' now was original at some point, and folk (in my view) is supposed to record the tales, legends and concerns of the people of the times. Are we supposed to write about things that concern us and then not sing about them for 100 years until they become history and somehow more venerable?
Stop sniping and sneering, get your finger out of your ear, and support local folk in Hull.
And yes, I am in the band. And I'm really looking forward to being involved.
