Thread Name: Child Ballads survived in oral trad.
Subject: RE: Child Ballads survived in oral trad.
Cap'n
Mathew is right - I have no intention of discussing your, or anybody's singing on this thread, and I certainly am not entering a 'slagging off of traditional singers' here or anywhere.
My point remains; for me, traditional singers bring something different to the songs than do virtually all revival singers I have listened to; they also bring information that revival singers do not, simply because they/we haven't 'been there and done that'
If it is not the same with you, let's agree to differ and continue talking about the ballads.
