Thread Name: New Book: Folk Song in England
Subject: RE: New Book: Folk Song in England
Before we embark on this, I ask JC politely and earnestly to apologise for referring to us as 'deskbound academics'. Not one person on this thread, and I know many of the contributors personally, could be described in this way. We are all heavily involved in the folk scene, organising, performing, etc., and are no more deskbound or academic than JC himself.
