GUEST,Pseudonymous The current state of folk music in UK (1949* d) RE: The current state of folk music in UK 28 Oct 19

Like it or not, a lot of Beatles songs have entered into the wider pool or repertoire of songs that live performers, including the newest generation will draw upon. So has Neil Young, for example. I believe that this mirrors the process whereby commercial songs in the past got taken up, and so I welcome it.

It is an old and, you could argue, 'traditional' process. Indeed, as Jim knows very well, Pardon himself believed that the songs his uncle taught him had come from come from (commercially produced) broadsheets. I know he was marketed as a 'traditional' singer, but this glosses over the facts.
