But its closed to new material because recording makes oral transmission of songs unlikely to the point of impossibility in a folk song context. It's alive in other areas like football chants, playground songs, boozy coach trips, where words and tunes are accidentally or deliberately swapped, but extinct in the hallowed back rooms of The Folk Club where the only variation is in delivery. And that doesn't fit 1954.
