Re: [Harp-L] Gussow in Princeton or messing with the "blues tradition"

I don't get it myself.  It's music.  Play and listen to what you enjoy and if someone else likes something different - so what?

This kind of argument is endemic in Irish Trad, where the "true

However I did not expect to find this kind of angst among members of  the
Blues community, where I (mistakenly?) thought that improvisation and doing
your own thing was the name of the game.
