Er, go back and read what I wrote..... a broad band of folk music from other lands.... If I could do the coloured highlight thing on folk I would. Musical diversity is not the issue here, ethnic diversity is. Many people forget that other lands have folk music too, that has just as much history and tradition as anything from Childe Ballads or the Dancing Master.
Can you invite a Sword Dancing side from, say, East London, so's I can get an excuse to come over with Manitas??
