GUEST,JoeG The current state of folk music in UK (2105* d) RE: The current state of folk music in UK 16 Nov 19

'It is a somewhat dated experimental rendition in a style that has gone the way all pop renditions eventually go'

Yes - heard by many thousands more people than what you consider to be the only true 'folk' versions will be heard by. Some of whom, as I have said, may be interested enough in the songs to discover more about them - like I was when I heard Steeleye Span and Five Hand Reel and became a life long devotee of the songs and music.

People still listen to, love and perform folk rock you know, and it is a well loved genre with quite a few artists such as Joshua Burnell finding new audiences for folk songs. All good in my view. It is certainly not dead.
