GUEST,JoeG Young Audiences - Trad Folk V Folk Rock (152* d) RE: Young Audiences - Trad Folk V Folk Rock 08 Feb 19

'Folk police' is hardly an insult - just a gentle reference to those who think that their interpretation of folk is the only one. I'm sorry Jim but to blame folk rock for creating 'an oppressive atmosphere' is just laughable. You are the one who is trying to oppress by insisting that those of us who love various forms of folk music do not call the music we admire 'folk' when it quite obviously is. If there is to be any hope of getting new generations into the music that has enriched my life and presumably all of us here then such narrow definitions of folk and antagonism to music that expands and enriches the genre really needs to stop. Though I can't imagine many young people look in here very often as they will have been appalled by the narrowness and intransigence of some contributors views. A shame as there is much to learn and enjoy
