Jim Carroll Hope for folk music - Jon Doran! (262* d) RE: Hope for folk music - Jon Doran! 20 May 20

"The way folk music is performed REALLY DOES NOT MATTER ONE BIT."
I'm sorry for your sister's plight, as i am for all those in a similar position
Because of this bloody awful disaster, which some of us believe has been handled criminally and unforgivably badly, far too many others are in a similar, even worse situation
If the way folk music started does not matter, this performer you have vigorously supported matters even less
Life goes in and what was important before will remain important long after this is all over

The spare time we now have on our hands seems an excellent reason for such healthy and thought provoking discussions such as this

We are all in the same position - why the hell should I try to get into something I don't like whan I have now reached the age when I'm not going to fineish the work we have spent most of our lives doing on teh music we do like?
Why add to our problems - don't be silly
We made a promise to those we collected from that we would not let their songs die - we partly fulfilled that promise when Clare County Library put hundreds of them on line
The next step is to assist the British Library put some more on line - them encourage Limerick Uni to make the Travellers recordings available
Why the **** should I waste what time I have getting to line that come with a sell-by date who will be forgotten by the world when the Musoc Industry devised they are no longer a profitable asset ?
I haven't even managed to read War and Peace yet
