GUEST,Ian cookieless Why are folkies scruffy (240* d) RE: Why are folkies scruffy 10 Apr 07

Seems to me that a lot of folkies realise what many die-hard rock and pop fans (and the original poster) do not: that image is no substitute for musical substance and ability. If you can play/sing, why do you need to dress up? If a person judges all other people by appearance, then they have a depleted life.

Wesley S: "Folks here in America do a lot of things better than the folks in England. Building guitars for instence [sic]. I'll assume that dressing nicely is one of them also." Wesley, you have obviously never heard of George Lowden (Irish) or Rob Armstrong (English), both of whom make guitars that have timbre, projection and subtlety that make any US-made guitar seem like a toy. Just my opinion. Also, bragging about themselves is one talent Americans in general have in much, much more abundance than the English in general. To the English, this self-aggrandisement makes those who do it look like arses. Sorry, asses. I prefer the English way, thank you.
