Subject: RE: Need input on youth in folk music
well crap anything doesn't make for the greatest of evenings.

sorry didn't mean to wake you up. this isn't a simplistic four legs good two legs bad conversation. i think guest you're maybe out of your depth.

Will and i have been involved with folk music for fifty years. we care about it. Will has done stuff on the four string tenor guitar that would leave any audience delighted. such achievements take hours of dedication and practice.

if you listened to the present day traderati - you would think that particular instrument was only capable of being thrashed to within an inch of its life. you're not going to inspire anyone - young or old if the music stirs no sense of beauty within yourself.
