GUEST,Observer UK Folk Revival 2018 (605* d) RE: UK Folk Revival 2018 19 Aug 18

it's the 21st Century...

electic guitars and amps, keyboards, microphones, virtual software instruments, etc
have never been cheaper, better quality, and more easily accesible to most ordinary families...

A kid who learns a few chords on an acoustic and still sounds shit,
might actually sound slightly more listenable on an electric...???

There you go pfr - what you have described is exactly what I said. On the path that you and GUEST Joe G seem to want to tread you HAVE TO be able to play to participate.

Taking your forum name literally, what punk-folk/folk-rock material can you perform a cappella? What material can you perform without there being a band behind you? What material can you perform totally acoustically? Now in complete contrast to all of that any old "Traddie" can sing any traditional song a cappella, he/she can do so entirely on their own, and they normally do that acoustically - the same applies to anyone who can hold a tune that walks into a folk club that supports traditional folk.
