Anyway trad song is in dnger in England[imo] because of coomercial pressure, lack of venues where people can listen, where it is not treated as background music, commercialisaton of folk festivals so trad songs get sidelined to fringe events or smaller eventsor get performed and altered with over arrangement or changes so that the music gets further from its roots
