GUEST,Les in Chorlton 100 Years since Cecil Sharp heard 'Seeds of Love' (33) RE: 100 Years since Cecil... 19 Oct 03


But, where do we go from here? Do we carry on as we are - same kind of venues/events same kind of arrangements or ............... what?

I ask this question again because I really don't know what the answer is. I don't suppose Sharp could have guessed what came to happen in the 50s & 60s. The second revival happened because a whole set of circumstances, of which many have happened.

I am quite happy to listen straightforward songs and tunes but Hutchins and lots of others have done lots of good things, as have Edward II / E2K, the Afro Celts and so on. Many minority ethnic communities have rich and alive musical traditions. what, with sensitivity and respect, can we learn and enjoy from and with their traditions?
