Subject: RE: Traditional Music: Where are we going wrong?
If you want to enable people more readily to relate to folk music a kaossilator (or even wavedrum) is a barrier not a gateway.

Well, why should it be a barrier? Depends entirely on your musical taste. And, for heavens sakes, why should I or anyone else be in the business of enabling people to like anything, including whatever you feel folk music should be?

You just do your own thing and, if people like it, so much the better. As it happens, I bought Sean's last CD on the Folk Police label (as Sedayne) and I think it's excellent - original, interesting, inventive, entirely musical, personal and fascinating. If you don't care for it, that's none of my business.
