Subject: RE: 'Occupy English Folk Music!'
Michael, thank you for the post. It's the present-day usage (affectation) that grates my cajones. My grandmother and grandfather both crossed 'in steerage' earlier in the twentieth century, and so far as they were concerned, the Atlantic was a term always preceded by 'that bloody'. My grandfather was sick for a week and my gran for half a fortnight.

Perhaps detest was too strong a word. Dislike would be more apt. Hope I caused no one any offence.
