But you don't allow new songs to be described as folk music Richard, so the only variation can be in setting, not material. That to me is a sealed body of work which will only ever disappear further into the past. Lots of traddies accept that and I have no issues with it. The conditions that gave rise to the original material have gone, never to come again probably - although if the world economy heads the way it's going who can say - but it certainly won't be from a club in the sense we have them now.

I'm simply asking for logical consistency.
