Subject: RE: UK Folk Revival 2018
in my case, it wasn't so much I wanted 'to make it in the folk world'. I think the acknowledgement that I was a folk, whose folk music had a degree of validity would have sufficed.

you've got to admit, there were some right snotty buggers around in the 1970's.

That was what was so nice about Peggy and Ewan - they were accepting of what I was, what I did. They were respectful. Couldn't say the say the same for some of their disciples.
