Thread Name: Country music in 1970s UK folk clubs
Subject: RE: Folklore: Country music in 1970s UK folk clubs
The late Jack Hudson had one of the finest country music voices I ever heard. As the traddie thing gathered strength, Jack's devotion to Americana got squeezed out of the UK folk music movement. Which was a shame and ultimately the UK folk music's loss. Not only did it deprive the movement of a great talent, and the American strand in English folk music has certainly been there since the popularity of American music hall artists in the 1880's.
