Thread Name: Preservation?
Subject: RE: Preservation?
Imagine if Celtic musicians were to reject everything traditional? You have to preserve the old stuff in order to have a frame of reference upon which to develop.

If musical traditions are "Alive", that suggests birth, growth etc (and implies ultimate death...Think about that. Does development ultimately become destruction?).

Or have I been reading too many Carthy Sleevenotes?
