Thread Name: New Book: Folk Song in England
Subject: RE: New Book: Folk Song in England
I thrive on strong criticism, Jim. I just thought we were trying to avoid having the thread shut down!

'denigrated the work of fellow researchers' The alternative to that is blind faith and I don't go there as you know.

'belittled the contribution of one of England's most important singers'
I have the utmost respect and admiration for Walter's contribution, and not selectively. If we had met I'm sure we would have got on famously, swapping songs and melodeon tunes. You misrepresent me once again.
