Subject: RE: Living Tradition and the Revival
Is it all about exposure then, when a culture gains access to other types of music and starts analysing their own against other measures it becomes inauthentic.

Am I harming the folk proccess by considering these things, should we just plough on in ignorance to be regarded as truely traditional.

Or is this an extreamly offensive statement implying that singers of traditional material in years passed, or in marginalised sectors of the community don't have oppinions about their approach to music?
