Subject: RE: Traditional Music: Where are we going wrong?
I would also say that to the the extent that I have bothered to explore traditional English music, I really like it. I have found it quite beautiful and very often humorous. It has actually changed my attitude towards Britain and the British people which I admit was formerly too negative. I feel that I can see something about the folk soul that transcends the the exploits of the British Empire which has also led me to appreciate certain attributes of Britain in the here and now.
And like Will said, there nothing to go wrong here. The caliber of musician and scholar in this particular area is exceptionally high. It does seem to run in families and more so out of love than pride.
