Just a note to thank you for an excellent blog ... You've broadened my horizons beyond the Steeleye Span/Fairport Convention folk thing that I developed a taste for as an 80s teenager but then got distracted by a range of other things ... Having picked up guitar again you've reinvigorated an interest and played havoc with my bank account ...
