GUEST,Derek Schofield Sidmouth, young and old: a concern (61* d) RE: Sidmouth, young and old: a concern 09 Oct 14


Bubblerat ... I don't think your posting does much to convince young Anon to continue pursuing his/her interest in folk music.

personally, I find there are undoubtedly some arrogant young people in folk, and equally some arrogant older people.... arrogance is not the prerogative of any particular age group. Generally, though the younger performers I come across are happy to mix with us oldies and keen to learn and hear what we have to say and sing ... and then do their own thing where appropriate, just like we did back in the day.

As for your experience Anon, I can only say that you might have been unfortunate .... not sure how old you are exactly - you didn't say - but are you in the Shooting Roots age range? Even if you are not (ie older) there are plenty of ex Shooting Roots people around who have themselves got a bit older.

I am not sure what young people would say ... I'll pass your comment to some of them who go to Sidmouth!

Finally, punkfolkrocker, I'd prefer it is everyone used their own name. Anon seems no different to punkfolkrocker .. perhaps I know who you really are, but punkfolkrocker gives me no clue!

Derek
