Rana who SHOULD be working Why are almost all 'mudcatters 'white?' (82* d) RE: Why are almost all 'mudcatters 'white?' 14 Jul 00

It's been interesting to follow this thread, actually somewhat amusing.

Just for the record I happen to be brown - maybe a "dark tan". Sort of arose 'cos my parents are from the Indian subcontinent. Being born and brought up in England exposed me to "folk" (European that is). Funnily I can't stand Indian "folk music". It comes down to what ones exposed to and taste.

It shouldn't be surprising that this forum will be dominated by a "white" membership. The main criteria is that everyone is welcome - indeed here race/colour should not matter. Assumptions should never be made - we had a question once about 3 members of our Morris team when standing together - who is the African, the Canadian and the European? The answers (in order) - Edward - born in what was Rhodesia and white, Jeff (great Bassoon player) whose folks are from the W. Indies and yours truly from England.

So quit worrying and enjoy the music from a varied, and I hope, ethnic folk background.

Cheers Rana
