surrounded by people shushing them all the time

Why is observing the same standards in a folk concert as in a musical, opera, ballet, theatre etc such a problem?

If I have paid to listen to an act, be it Martin Carthy or the ENO then that's what I want to hear not Gerry "Banjo Flower" blathering over the top of the performance.
