This argument appears to have divided neatly into two sides - I'm afraid as far as I am concerned, if you aint for us, you are agin us - sorry if you've got caught in the cross fire
It might have helped that, instead of pointing out how successful Ed Sheeran is, you'd have shared my outrage at his being identified as a better singer than our traditional ones (along with Robert Zimmerman) - but there you go.

All this is a bit of a diversion anyway - we were discussing the state of the clubs and whether they were in need of repair, not our own personal tastes
I have no doubt of your own commitment to traditional song - I don't need your assurances on that one
What you are prepared to tolerate in a 'folk club' is a different matter
