Steeleye [and others] were fresh sounding at the start...
but later became too slick and MOR...

Sounding more like a bunch of souless jobbing pro session players...

The youtube vid I posted last night demonstrates that all genres of live music
are under attack,
with opportunities for young musicians to gain experience and pay there dues rapidly diminishing...

Too many young wannabes bands and singers competing for fewer remaining grass roots local live venues,
that have not yet been closed down...

Main culprits...???, property developers and inner city/town gentrification, noise complaints, prohibitive insurance costs, etc....
