Flashmeister Folk Against Fascism launch at Sidmouth (335* d) RE: Folk Against Fascism launch at Sidmouth 13 Aug 09


Waaaaaaaaaaaaay too much squabbling. It it a cause that will be supported widely within the folk scene as well as cause distemper among other members of it. we are all different in our views BUT bickering on here is not going to change or solve anything.
If people want to get behind the cause, brilliant, if not then then that is just the reality of things, you can't please everyone and there will always be dissent from those who think they know better or are closet fascists.
I for one am behind FAF and against the BNP to the point that i would very much like to start making moves to organise an event in the FAF week in Luton where I live (read the papers on the BNP/NF there and you shall see why!) so no, I'm not just sitting on my arse giving it lip service here.
Folk music has also long been a form of protest from the the Diggers to the miners to today; it's story-telling, history, humour, cautionary tales, solidarity, love, loss, times of bounty and famine all rolled up and sung out loud by anyone moved enough to do so, go to any open session and you'll get it all so lets stop moaning that 'I don't want my folk political'.
All those who say 'yay!' to support FAF just bloody well do it and don't waste time picking the bones of a pointless argument.

ps. a little LOL at Mr.Harris preaching to eliza c on how to play folk music to lots of people...the novice that she clearly is :-D
