But it clearly is personal. Dick, akenaton, and Big Al clearly have a view that anything they do not like is of no value. Big Al even knows the minds and motivations of Carthy, Dylan and McTell.

All I can say is that, until I came across this forum, I had never heard of Dick Miles or akenaton as performers and have never heard them perform even now.

I have been involved in folk music (and life generally) enough to know that some people get embittered as they get older because youngsters get the recognition they never had because the means of such recognition did not exist.

Modern media makes everything more accessible. It is called progress - embrace or reject it but don't whine about it.
