GUEST,Peter Hope for folk music - Jon Doran! (262* d) RE: Hope for folk music - Jon Doran! 17 May 20


Many of the latest generation of young performers seem to me to be producing material as far from "folk" as the settings by Sharp, Vaughan Williams, Butterworth or Britten. Excellent music but not always to my taste. However if it encourages some people to look deeper into the topic that is excellent.

If the "folk" label hadn't been applied to some of the commercial material that I enjoyed in the 60s I would never have been tempted to visit a thing called a "folk club" which has had me hooked on pretty hard core English trad ever since.
