the sometimes denied English Traditional Music
Does this mean that there are those who deny the existence of English traditional music? Or am I reading it wrong?

This was a reference to a thread on the session forum which contrasted Irish and English traditions. One habitually provocative poster described the English tradition as broken. This then got taken up on mudcat cafe and turned into a slightly different squabble.

My own opinion is that the English tradition never died, it just kind of morphed into light entertainment and popular music. To be thoroughly up to date the argument ought to be about are Irish boy bands better than English boy bands. Or are Irish TV talent shows better than English TV talent shows. I neither know or care.

Well, there's loads of proper - by any definition or test - traditional music in England. It doesn't get much attention from the entertainment industry at large, but there's loads of it going on.

I agree. But back, say, in the 19th century I suspect that people thought differently about what we now call traditional music. To the man in the factory, mill or farm it would just have been music.

The more educated people made the same distinctions that we do today, and the likes of Cecil Sharpe and composers all over Europe started to document and collect as much as they could. I know that in 20th century UK, music halls and then recordings and then radio became a process which 'homogenised' our culture into the generality we have today.

So when I play traditional music now it's because I prefer it as it was, compared with what it has become. I am aware that when I play Soldiers Joy today I am not doing the same thing as someone who played it in 1912.

Did anyone mention Pierre Bensusan yet? One of the best. Here in Ireland the two big names that stand out are Arty McGlynn and (suprisingly not yet mentioned) Steve Cooney. Tony McManus is another obvious one who has recorded a great catalogue of tunes. The other big contender at the minute is Tim Edy. They're all on youtube. Hope this helps.

Kris Drever is a superb guitarist and singer from Scotland. His playing with the three-piece Lau is fantastic. Dick Gaughan is also a very talented musician.

Ancient thread, to be sure, but in the interest of completeness, I just HAD to mention John Renbourn, the guitarist who opened my eyes to Celtic and English guitar and possibly one of the best ever.

Robin Bullock is another great one. John Doan, while a tad on the New Age side, is also very good.

And don't ignore classical guitarists! David Russell has a cd called Message of the Sea which has some incredible arrangements of Celtic folk tunes. Ronn McFarlane also has a couple of cds dedicated to Scottish folk tunes played on the lute that are worth mentioning.
