Thread Name: Mike Harding's Beautiful Music
Subject: RE: Mike Harding's Beautiful Music
Lots of uncomfortable things going on in this thread:

I've not heard 'Bombers' Moon'. Very impressive words - but a wicked part of me says, if you want to get 'em going, you can't beat a song about the tragedy and futility of war.

And even though it's no doubt a terrific song (by Mike Harding even ... no further comment!) is it a folk song?

And is the great Eliza C. really saying "all music's folk music, I ain't heard no hoss etc.". Oh dear, I hope not ...
