Subject: RE: 'Occupy English Folk Music!'
don't listeners have the right to listen to whatever they want?

This is the only sensible attitude toward the singer-songwriter/folk musician thing. In fact, it's the only reasonable attitude toward life in general . . .

Lizzie, painting all traditional musicians with a brush that only applies to a few is pretty much the same as saying all black folks can be defined by the actions of one or two. Would a thread based on that concept be lighthearted fun? C'mon, let's put white folks in charge of all the civil rights organizations! It'll be fun!

Do you really not get it?

I'm all for lighthearted fun, but rarely when it involves putting people in a pigeonhole of your own making and then laughing at them because you think they are in it.
