Subject: RE: BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2019
no some bloke , i have never stated that it should stand still, i have stated that i believe these awards are not the way i would like to see it move forward , that is completely different.
I enterd the folk revival in 1966 the first person i saw in a folk club was ralph mctell singing blind blake songs, then i heard gerry lockran singing blues in a folk club i later heard tradtional songs, so my musical taste EVOLVED , i still like ralph mctell, i still like some blues performers.
I also like jazz and classical music, I also like the smodern songs written by various performers Bill caddick, MacColl, Peter Bond, Rosselson
you have made assumptions about my musical tastes that are wrong.
I have never stated that the folk revival should stand still, I said that these awrds are not a good idea ,
I also said that i think that these awards are not a good idea, i do not think they are the best way to develop the music, or the best way for this music to evolve, that does not mean that i think the music should stand still, it never does that any way, because most singers who understand tradtional music, cause it to evolve by altering the way they sing it and putting their own interpretation on the song. if you think that tradtional music is standing still you have no understanding of the nature of the beast.Some Bloke you have once again shown your ignorance of tradtional music.
