Thread Name: Folk Process - is it dead?
Subject: RE: Folk Process - is it dead?
'Bubblyrat',

I have to say that I was particularly pissed off when, about 25 - 30 years ago, the old songs were hi-jacked by rock musicians - who also thought that they could 'improve' them.

And, yet again, to WLD. Us 'purists' are a teeeny-tiiiny, microscopically small, miniscule minority. If the 'Folk Process' decides to get underway again (if it ever stopped - I'm not sure) there's nothing we could do to stop it, even if we wanted to. Please feel free to start a new movement more relevant to today. I certainly won't stand in your way - good luck, God speed and bon voyage! Why if I find it exciting, and it appeals to my imagination, I might even join you!
