Sandman is a great performer who is generous with advice and assistance to musicians and all with an interest in folk music. I am sure that he believes, as I do, that our music is about much more than simple delivery or even the wish for fame and fortune. An understanding of traditional music can make us all better people.
Most of today's young performers have never developed that understanding, as they have never known want, or felt the strength of music as a balm against hardship.
Prosperity kills more than it propagates.
