Differences between trad and folk - are there any?
It occured to me that a lot of people are ignorant of the differences between Traditional music and Folk music.
In my own opinion, both are great creative outlets, but there is a big difference between the genres.
Unfortunately, it seems that unless you do one or the other as a pastime/lifesyle, most casual punters couldnt tell the difference if someone showed them.
Am I wrong and making a sweeping generalisation?
Is any one else p*ssed off with people asking them why they dont do the lonesome boat man, not to mention the fields of athenry etc etc etc etc……………🙁
