GUEST,Ian cookieless what is the Folk Process (35) RE: what is the Folk Process 07 Mar 08

"What is the folk process?" Artistic evolution (gradual or sometimes radical change) of a song (its words, tune, or both) or story by being passed through a series of hands, mouths and minds. Being passed on in different geographical directions leads to local variants. Individuals may have individual variants. "Should it, when defined, include conscious as well as unconcious alterations." Of course. Why wouldn't it?

But I think you know this already, Dick!
