Subject: RE: Jim Moray- new face of folk? BBC R4 now
And finally - yes lots of teens and pre teens play traditional music, but how many of them actually play English traditional music? Irish and Scottish folk music are very popular amongst the younger generations but they do tend to overshadow it, 'cause they seem more exciting and trendy. Moray has always focused exclusively on the English tradition, 'cause it is that that needs to be given more attention.
