Thread Name: New Book: Folk Song in England
Subject: RE: New Book: Folk Song in England
I am suddenly struck with the similarity of the discussions here with other folk related discussions that have happened over the years.

I refer to whether Morris Dancing should be preformed by Women, and the more recent controversy of Backing Up in Border Morris - Historical arguments abound in both cases - but really, it nearly all blew over eventually, and no one was really right or wrong - everybody carried on with what they wanted to do...........

It's the "Carrying On" that is important; Isn't that what Tradition is about?
