Subject: RE: UK Folk Revival 2018
My contention why so much current televised folk is so bland & boring,
is that it has become dominated by 'tastefull' sophisticated music college
instrumental virtuosity and arrangements...???

but then again.. public schoolboys also infiltrated and pulled strings in classic era rock and punk...
Just, they hid themselves a bit more efectively...

I'll also state my educated opinion
that the punk indie self recording and distribution ethic
owed much to preceding and parallell cottage industry folk music vanity press record lables...
