GUEST,The Mole Catcher's unplugged Apprentice Pop Goes The Folk Singer (338* d) RE: Pop Goes The Folk Singer 23 Apr 08

I do believe we've seen this tired old scenario before in quite a few threads. Maybe instead of posting the instigator of this particular thread should perhaps get out there and do something about the problem as he sees it. So you don't like this perceived 'Americanisation' of others culture, some people don't have a problem with it, and it's not going to go away in a big hurry.

Personally I don't have a thing against 'folk-rock', I do believe that was the label given to the likes of Fairport Convention et al, and...umm..dare I say this, the source of one of the songs on Liege & Lief isn't even British, it is, I believe, The Appalachian Mountains version of the tale, I refer to Matty Groves. Isidious isn't it how those Americans creep into British culture? *LOL*
