Subject: RE: EFDSS awards funding for new music
Pot-bellies and grey beards are quite common among men after a certain age. This has no bearing at all on their musical taste.

If the older generation around the "folk scene" are so out of touch. Why would new song writers be so keen to have their offerings associated with the folk label? the 1960's are well past.

The same old songs are repeated because they have been and still are sung and enjoyed by a great number of people over the years. If everyone decided to sing only material by new writers you would be left with pop music most of which dies very soon. By all means write new songs but don't give them a label which they don't deserve. If the songs are good they will last.
