GUEST,Pseudonymous The current state of folk music in UK (1950* d) RE: The current state of folk music in UK 03 Nov 19

Some and I emphasise some of the roots of some blues music are often argued to lie precisely in folk music from Britain (and other parts of the world). Thus Leadbelly's Gallows Pole. A third person blues ballad form exists. So on one level you might argue that the roots of blues and folk are not so utterly far apart. This is not to downplay the origins of much content of blues in slavery.
