Subject: RE: UK Folk Revival 2018
shite is shite.
whether its traditional English shite or pop shite.

You're happy with one load of shite but the other bothers you.
If you run a folk club you get to be tolerant of most kinds of musical shite. not too many virtuosi turn up on singers nights.

however you do get very grateful to the musicians who make genuine efforts, whatever their inclinations. you get to understand their preoccupations and concerns. you're happy for them when they defeat their demons, improve their technical skills, gain the respect of the audience and join the company of musicians.

the underscript to your posting is that you are tolerant of lazy, unmusical bores as long as they like the same music as you do.

Shite stinks, whoever shits it.
