To Morris-ey I would say that the songs and tunes that fuelled the revival incorporated to a large extent the lives and deeds of men and women long dead but not forgotten ....there has to be an historical dimension to folk music or it becomes only another branch of the entertainment industry.
I'm well over 70 but the stuff being produced today under the guise of folk music will be forgotten before I finally lay down my tools.
