I remember a couple of decades back this guy saying to me (I was wearing a suit at the time as I was working) that he could never be like me as I was quite cool and ok but "oppressed by wearing a uniform". I suggested he was wearing a uniform too which he scoffed at but then I guessed his favourite band were The Levellers. Because he was not an individual as he claimed to be but was dressed in the typical new age hippy gear. Saying that I like the Levellers but didn't take to someone judging folk by their working clothes ??

The Levellers had a very loyal fan base.
Lots of my mates in the South West were into them.
[.. ah... memories of crusties and Swampy the mole man protestor..]
We saw them at a festival in Budapest just over 20 years ago,
and the mrs became an immediate CD buying fan..
The local band 3 Daft Monkeys have since followed on and catered to the same new age hippy audience..

Are the Levellers still going in some form...???

Another good thing was bringing curry to Britain so it is now one of our best loved national dishes...

There's no denying the Victorians achieved some great things,
even if not always for the best, most progressive, or humanitarian reasons...

It also got rid of a lot of annoying god botherers from our island,
when they eagerly buggered off to become missionaries

A reminder that folk music has long being linked to nationalism - in the early part of last century, when classical musicians were keen to give a nod to nationalism, they often turned to folk music.

Positive nationalism is definitely good for humanity.

And I'm not deluding myself re Gandhi - I am well aware that, in terms of popularity and umph, I am very different.

When he repatriated from African to Asia and began asking Europeans to repatriate to Europe (using non-violent non-cooperation and education), the majority of his people loved him for it and pushed him into leadership.

Funnily enough, Jack, I have often thought that Rap can be a type of Folk. Not the "Gangsta" stuff or the obscene or misogynistic stuff but there is a good section that tells real stories of ordinary folk living often hard lives. Not heard Stormzy so I dunno what section he falls in. Must have a listen some time.

>> Shakespeare wrote a lot about Italy, and almost certainly spent time there.

He almost certainly didn't, according to the Shakespeare scholars I know (one of whom I am married to). This supposed intimacy with Italy is used by those people who believe that a bankrupt glover's son who went to grammar school would be incapable of writing the plays, and that someone from a posher background (often one similar to the people making this accusation) was the playwright.

your perspective applies to England

Of course it does Dick. We are talking about Glastonbury. Which as far as I am aware is in England. As it happens, I am half Polish but that does not stop me from enjoying English culture and music. As to Ireland, I cannot say as I do not know but I just looked at the current Irish top 10 and I don't recognise any traditional folk songs there.

Goodness, so now we will be saying that people in foreign countries shouldn't be putting on performances of Shakespeare, if foreigners want to see Shakespeare they have to come to England (nor even Britain) to see it.

The bit about food is utterly bonkers. Influences from all around the world have greatly enhanced British cusine. If we were reduced to eating the kind of chloresterol enhanced meals that Walkabouts lists, life would be very dull. Also short as we would be dying of heart attacks in our 40s.

As for comparing yourself with Gandhi, thats your very own Dan Quayle moment.

Some of us are prepared to give you benefit of the doubt,
but you are making yourself look at the very least contradictory and confused...

I believe you are not a white supremacist, their sort are a nasty minority.
But your liking for other races and cultures,

your words also inadvertently agree with, support, and propagate such obvious crude prejudices...

No, folk performers are not inferior. Nor are the mainstream performers. They are just different. For the record, there is some folk music at Glastonbury. There is some Pop at Whitby. Long may that situation last.

It's not a war. It's many different sets of tastes living in harmony and not doing each other any harm. The only antagonism I am seeing is from you I'm afraid:-(
