"I wasn't patting you on the back, merely laughing at the absurdity of your statement. "
And I was just kicking yours into touch
So far Al has shuffled around the fact that there is a long established definition of the music that served as a source of interest and entertainment for nearly four decades
It's recorded in title as far back as 'The Penguin Book of Folk Song' right through to the magnificent eight volume Greig Duncan Folk Song Collection
There are many thousands of books and articles describing its uniqueness as an art form
I'm afraid yur somewhat evasive bullshit doesn't come anywhere near to l=knocking down that monulment to working people's culture and creation

THere aren't enough "other ordinary people" to scratch together an alternative definition, it would appear Al

Whoops - have to be more careful - just spilled my stodgy gravy down my "tit trousers"]
You pair really aren't explaining yourselves at all clearly
