GUEST,Pseudonymous The current state of folk music in UK (1945* d) RE: The current state of folk music in UK 14 Nov 19

"You, who claim to love folk music, damage it every time to start to pontificate about it."

Example: I had got to loathe even the mention of the name Ewan MacColl, largely as a result of the tirades relating to him I had encountered here, some of which is in the copious posting and splatter as referred to above.

It was only going back to Harker, that I began to appreciate his talents again, though I still do not regard him as a folk singer.

And I'm still not sure that a trained technician, who at one point was almost certainly self employed counts as a manual labourer as opposed to petit bourgeois.

I would not mind copious posting if it were carefully thought through, organised, well written and reliable. I know Jim has in the past sneered at people not literate/careful enough to write correctly in their posts. Time he took his own advice. And as complaint after complaint shows, his reading skills seem a bit rusty. Too much taking out of context and twisting.
