Subject: RE: New Book: Folk Song in England
"Unfortunately Jim, I don't regard you as a reliable source of historical information."
I'll lay awake worrying about that one Pseau
You know who I am, you have been given enough to know what Pat and I did, you can read up on our work and listen to our singers - you can even visit the Library at Limerick University World Music Department that (somewhat embarrassingly) is to be named after us
I don't even know your name, let alone what you are from or what you have done
In then end, it's not about us but the singers and those who opened the doors to these wonderful songs
There have been liberal doses of insulting, demeaning and marginalising all of those to one degree or another, so I can take a degree of comfort in remembering that I am in the best of company as a recipient of your insulting behaviour
You appear not to have learned very much
I think it best that we stop trading insults before we close this thread - don't you?
Jim
