Polite Guest more session rudeness (415* d) RE: more session rudeness 16 Jun 08

"I'm also quite amused by all of these patronising posts about 'our music', 'music of the people' etc etc. My experience of people who say things like this is that they are usually people who have discovered folk music later on in life, understandably fall in love with it and are very precious about it."

Nope, I'm not 'precious' about it. I want more people to hear it, enjoy it, know about it, but it would be such a shame if it became like 'any other music'. It *is* special, tough, because people care about it.

One of the 'cool as folk brigade' did offer a 'sorry we didn't realise, I'll buy you a beer next time' response to the original post (much) earlier in the thread but nobody seemed to notice... I got the impression that everyone was too busy being outraged...

Sorry lads and lasses, I hadn't spotted that bit. Apologies from me. I'll leave others to make their own. Thanks Cat, for telling us.

I'd still like to hear them though, if it's possible.
