Thread Name: Types of folk music you like or dislike
Subject: RE: Types of folk music you like or dislike
There's a program on BBC Radio 3 at 2 pm on a Sunday called The Early Music Show. Today, or yesterday by now, it featured music by Corelli, Locatelli, Valentini and Pergolesi. I was in heaven. This is what I love to listen to.

I like playing traditional tunes. Particularly I like to play traditional tunes in company.

I can live without listening to other people sing, and experience has suggested that other people reciprocate, but have to admit I just don't get unaccompanied singing. I'm not a farmer, I hate muddy fields and never wanted to follow a plough. It's the music that gets me.

The words, not so much.
