Richard Mellish New Book: Folk Song in England (2094* d) RE: New Book: Folk Song in England 24 Aug 18


Ah, what a relief! A succession recently of thoughtful and constructive posts instead of people misquoting each other

Rhythmic or not varies a lot, depending on the particular song and the particular singer. Instrumental accompaniment, which is very common in the revival and was pretty rare in the tradition, tends to impose a fairly regular rhythm, though there are accompanists who can avoid that.
