GUEST,beachcomber New 'Revival' of Folk Music in England. (155* d) RE: BS: New 'Revival' of Folk Music in England. 14 Mar 10


Would you not accept, C.S. , that those "trendy young folk bands" ; that we have mentioned ; did play some role in raising the profile of an older type of music , by bringing their versions of "folk music" to a young, wider audience (Adapted to their accoustic guitars though it may have been - but isn't adaptation the very strength of traditional music ?) Many of this " trendy young audience " may well have become the present day supporters of the "true" tradition that you obviously love and cherish ?
