Thread Name: Traditional Music: Where are we going wrong?
Subject: RE: Where are we going wrong?
I am not sure you should take the Irish tourist industry appropriating music as a commodity to be sold as a sign of the health of traditional music.

If you look however at the number of young people enthusiastically taking up and playing traditional music and using it in a social context, then you're probably looking at a better indicator. Which will indeed show you things are looking healthy enough for another while yet.
