GUEST,The Mole Catcher's unplugged Apprentice Pop Goes The Folk Singer (338* d) RE: Pop Goes The Folk Singer 06 May 08


'Some English country dances are for a set number of couples - others are traditionally announced as being "for as many as will". I believe the English folk heritage can also be for "as many as will". For an example of this ecumenical spirit, listen to Edward II ( later E2K )- a band including a number of English-born Rastafarians - wellying into Shepherd's Hey, a century after Sharp collected that tune from Kimber. They show that music with traditional roots can still flourish in a multi-cultural environment.'

Speaks loud and clear to me.
