TheSnail What is Happening to our Folk Clubs (1104* d) RE: What is Happening to our Folk Clubs 29 Oct 17


Nothing to disagree with about the Shirley Collins quote.

From an interview with her here - https://www.m-magazine.co.uk/features/interviews/interview-shirley-collins/

What do you think about current folk music trends?
It?s wonderful that people are turning back to it. There?s a growing interest in folk, which is lovely. It?s no longer something you have to despise or laugh at. It?s lovely now at my age to see young people playing the songs really well. The singing and the accompaniments these days are light years away from what it was when I was starting out.


I wonder what she'd have to say about you. I won't ask, I wouldn't want to upset her. She has certainly had a few comments about MacColl.
