..hopefully on an original instrument, though maybe a modern copy would be more reliable.
Agreed, Micky. Use of original instruments risks a disastrous drop in pitch at crucial moments.
But some life enhancing, top quality stuff gets through. Alex Harvey, elvis costello, difford and tilbrook,radiohead to name just a few at random, are people who have made music of the highest quality, and enhanced the lives of true music lovers the world over. But the rock and pop industry just produces more and more bland nonsense, so other genres, such as folk, benefit from the energy and talent of young people.
Good example...todays young folk musicians don;t apologise for their involvement in a music that hails from the past... they celebrate their rediscovery of it.
Ever felt the need to apologise for reading Twitter?
No, because i don't.
You don't read it or you don't apologise for reading it?
