Cittern, pipes and harp like never before. (Is this Sean Bean on cittern, I ask myself?) Better get the ceilidh band tooled up...

Sean Bean on cittern, for sure, plus, unless I miss my mark, Alexei Sayle on drums.

speaking of tattoos, one of England's premier folk guitarists has an amazing and very artistic tattoo on his chest (right-hand pec), but never shows it during performance AFAIK.

"one of England's premier folk guitarists has an amazing and very artistic tattoo on his chest (right-hand pec), but never shows it during performance"

Probably because it was designed by his ex-wife. He used to show it quite a lot.

Folk Metal has gotten extremely popular, especially in Northern Europe. Note that this video by Swiss band Eluveitie has over 5 million views.

In Extremo were actually the result of the fusion of heavy metal band and a mediaeval band ... heaven knows whose idea it was, but they have been extremely successful in their own home territory. Seems to work!

Lordy! Well, the beard would probably fit in OK, but there's a definite further forward projection of the stomach muscles advance of the pecs... Don't think I'd go half-nekkid on stage without a see-through corset. :-)

Damien Barber has a positively splendid set of tats... a joy to behold and should be flayed from his body and framed when he pops off.

And what the hell, if you've got it, flaunt it!

In my youth the culture was that tattoos were a bit infra-dig. Like men (and women) sporting pierced ears.

On a scale of things that are important. They look as if they can play their instruments. That is all we can ask. If it is Folk for the modern idiom let the modern idiot listen.

But as Martin Carthy says (fawn, fawn) "You can do anything to folk, absolutely anything at all, and it will survive. Except when you ignore it." And who are we to contradict the deity?

Well as a young medical student in the 60s, our VD specialist (yes, that's what they were called in those days) told us very categorically to suspect any tattoed women as they were very likely "professional ladies of the night" and likely to be carrying a few nasties. Judgmental or what?

I listened to the video for a full 20 seconds. While the visual may seem modern, the music (and the audience clapping) were 100% traditional. Granted, the chick-chick-chick sound came from a trap set rather than from a shaky egg, but as a sound it is nothing new.

No doubt they will do something more 'modern' later - if you can call present-day rock, which doesn't seem to have done anything new since Jimi Hendrix, modern.

If Will is worried about whether his manly torso is fit for audience exposure, he should take a look at the harper. In this version, he keeps his clotes on but I'm not sure about the little woolly hat.

So if they can pull a crowd like that playing bagpipes what is the folk world doing wrong?

Personally I love it but then I also have a soft spot for Skyclad and Schandmaul and many others. Prog folk is alive and well.

Interestingly oggie junior (who hasn't been to a folk festival or session for many years, he had a couple of bad experiences and opted out) is off to a metal festival in Slovakia this summer where about half the bands are prog-folk.

I have some tattoos,including one by Professor Rex Zeta, late of Union Street, Plymouth (1964),but it hasn't affected my playing.One of my Commanding Officers (Captain J C Y Roxburgh RN )had at least one quite large tattoo ,which did him no harm at all. Likewise HRH The Prince Philip ( you must have heard of the Edinburgh Tattoo ?).
    I have NEVER earned any money from folk music,hence my bare chest.

No,cousin Will, not that one, although you can see it in all its glory (almost !) on the body of a sailor if you look at " Youtube--HMS Eagle at stand-easy"----narrated by Ludovic Kennedy,and well worth watching !! Actually,I always fancied having the two "Devils", one on each "cheek" shovelling coal up a fiery,flaming fundamental orifice ( it's a magnificent sight,if properly executed), but I chickened out.
            Anyway, if you do ( or anyone else does) watch "HMS Eagle at standeasy" or "HMS Eagle -replenishment at sea",you'll see enough Bare Chests AND Tattoos to last a lifetime --I know, because I was there ( for 3 years) ---and a lot of the crew were "folkies" !!

`e said, "Quick Jim, can you get me to that anti-tattooist up Notting `ill. I`ve gotta get shot of these"
I said, " What`s up with `em then. They look quite pretty?"
`e said, "There`s a bit in today`s rag on the Comment page about some geezer `oo `ad "local pig" done on `is arm in Chinese writing and probably didn`t realize it. I `ad mine done in some cheapo dive in `ong Kong. I dread to think what `es put on mine!!"
