Reynard said: "I think it's only natural to want to socialise with people around your own age with the same cultural reference points outside the narrow trad folk world."

I don't find that natural at all. One of the best things about the "trad folk world" is that age groups seem irrelevant and the generations mix happily. I find restricting yourself to your own age group is unnatural and very limiting, and should be resisted at all times, not just in the folk world.
