I'm in.

With a new Cup like this it's almost impossible to foretell which way the voting will go on issues like well-known/obscure, old/new, etc. This makes it fun and interesting to me. Luckily, I can always fall back on my impeccable musical instincts :mrgreen: , plus the fact that I don't really give a toss and just pick what I like and think is great.

So if we see Ralph McTell's big hit we'll know it's yours

Or tracks from Nurse With Wound's folk period.

This cup should be rather handy. I've had a mind to explore a bit of Brit Folk, et al having just stumbled upon a few Fairport Convention songs that were actually listenable. I'll be monitoring its progress and submitting my uninformed votes.
You read that in a book, didn't you?!

That's a great idea in principle, unfortunately we've all supplied either grainy footage of Albanian iso-polyphony or acoustic covers of Manowar songs.
Like fast-moving clouds casting shadows against a hillside, the melody-loop shuddered with a sense of the sublime, the awful unknowable majesty of the world.

I'm saving time by composing my comments now and cutting and pasting them into the match with the appropriate song style later.

Like ‘Yawn not more diddly diddly music’

‘That’s not folk music’

‘Tibetan Nose Flute is so 1980’s’

‘I prefer the original by Amos ‘Flat Cap’ Obergene’.

‘Ewan McColl was such a neophyte’
