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


"I should waste my time on something I don't understand and cannot get into"
As I said friom teh beginning and have repeated elsewhere - this has nothing to do with likes and dislikes - you made the suggestion - not me
It is about the confusing that I can define what I mean by folk song and what and those who call something entirely different "folk" can't
The same would arise if thearte people people began calling Arthur Miller plays "Shakespearean" - it would create the same confusion and conflict it has here
Two different things and may understanding beat your non-definition by a century anf a half
Your attitude has done much to kill of a bloody enjoyable and important music scene - one of the worst crimes has to tear it up by the grass roots and hand it back to the music industry we escaped from
Jim
