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


Dave,

I wasn't feeling sorry for you, after all everybody must like what they like, that's fine. But I do feel sorry for the English folkscene if that video is a measure of the state of it. I only watched it briefly and found no redeeming factors in it. I actually liked their original version of the Blackleg minor at the time but here the song is butchered, there's nothing enjoyable left. If that sells out concert tickets to great grannies and their great grandchildren, maybe that does tell us something about the state of things, and it isn't much to rejoice about.
