Thread Name: What is Happening to our Folk Clubs
Subject: RE: What is Happening to our Folk Clubs
"Nope. Totally incoherent."
If what I say is totally incoherent - as you and Dave have claimed, why do you all run round like headless chickens trying to contradict it?
You are truly one of the most disturbingly venomous posters on this forum Bryan
What I put up (in a hurry) was a list of my own quotes repeating what I would expect to see at a folk club
I accompanied it with a list of direct quotes from Dave showing that he was not telling the ruth when he said I had not made my position clear
Daave said:
"You say you expect a folk club to have "reasonably performed traditional songs coupled with new songs that have used traditional forms in their construction"
Then he goes on to accuse me that I had not given an explanaion of hat I expect of a folk club
A contradiction.
He asked
"Do we take it then that this is your definition of folk music?"
I responded that it is not my definition - it is what I expect of a night at a folk club - a mix of folk songs and contemporary song based on folk song styles
You know my opinion of what I expect from a folk club yet you continue to insist that I have not given it
That is maliciously dishonest
You are entitled to say you disagree with it but you are simply lying when you say I haven't given it
Venomous is the word that springs to mind
