Subject: RE: What is Happening to our Folk Clubs
"If you accept the 1954 definition then folk as a living medium is dead."
Why do you go on harping about the 54 definition
No club I ever attended over fifty years has even considered the definition as a policy - perhaps you might point out whih ones ever did?
his is just simple dishonesty to defame a type of music you obviously dislike and don't understand
Even the Holby City team can't revive a corpse back to life - the tradition as a living entity may have passed on, but what it produced in its lifetime still entertains and still fills volums - see The Greig Duncan Folksong Collection and Sam Henry's Songs of the People - or listen to the Caedmon Series from the School of Scottish Studies or 'Voice of the People' (now numbering over 20 albums) - redundant - I don't think so!!
This is just cultural vandalism spitefully delivered
