GUEST,jag Review: Walter Pardon; Research (498* d) RE: Review: Walter Pardon; Research 09 Nov 19


Thank you Jim. A very interesting read.

It leaves me scratching my head over the views you expressed in the discussion Steve Roud's book. What Walter describes his family doing, particularly with the 'new songs', and what he did with them as handed on to him seem to be examples of some of the processes Roud suggests were active in the evolution of 'what the folk sang'.

Seperate to that, how do you think what went on in the singing room at the Mitre Tavern compares with a pub song and tunes session now?
