Thread Name: Folk Music Dying?
Subject: RE: Folk Music Dying?
I see several referenecs here to the teaching, intentionally, of American (and American immigrant) folk music as the traditions of the respective communities. Such teaching may be under threat, but it exists.
Is there any equivalent at all in England for English musical tradition? If not, is that cause or consequence of the almost universal English scorn for English folk music and song?
Looks to me, Americans, as if you're better off than we are.
