largely print bound 'experts'

Wrong ,wrong, wrong again!

Both Steve Roud and I have spent our lives immersed in traditional music at least every bit as much as JC, as performers, field workers, dancers, mummers, organisers, callers, etc. etc. Neither of us has ever used the word 'experts' to describe ourselves, nor would we. And by the way we are not a 'small' group in terms of folk song research.
Which 'large' group does JC belong to I wonder.
