Subject: RE: UK Folk Revival 2018
It is sad that you feel that way Ake. You'd rather the music disappeared unless all of it only survived in your preferred version of it? There is plenty of emotional content in the songs and music of younger people. In any case no-one is saying trade should disappear so why should only your preferred incarnation of folk survive. I suppose we shouldn't have modern jazz, contemporary classical music etc either then. Music has to open to change to remain relevant. I for one don't want to spend all night listening to songs about milkmaids and handloom maids
