TheSnail What is Happening to our Folk Clubs (1104* d) RE: What is Happening to our Folk Clubs 29 Oct 17


I have repeated over and over again that, flawed as it is, the '54 one will do till a better one comes along,

A fol song iss something specific - ifit has another meaning than that documented, then you are committed to saying what it now means
The '54 definition was accepted internationally as a guide to what folksong means
That remains the case

"thus not conforming to the 1954 definition of songs which states that:"
Why can't you accept that the definition has SFA to do with any of this?
You appear to be claiming that folk song as defined has no place in today's scene

In our little world of folk, however you define it, technically we are the majority and we can point to a definition and say - "that's what we mean" - you can't


I'm confused. Is it the 1954 definition or not and, if not, what?
