GUEST,Jack Campin Folklore: Has the folk Process died? (168* d) RE: Folklore: Has the folk Process died? 17 Nov 19

It's easy to think the process doesn't happen any more because recordings by professionals don't reflect it.

They'll never use a version evolved in a pub session or football terrace when they can get a certified copyright-free version with added source-researcher's cred from a print or sound archive source.

People who think they're part of a carrying stream of tradition when they do what Steve describes are kidding themselves. Their efforts will be dissipated as soon as their listeners forget. And there's nothing at all wrong with that. Art does not need to persist to be worthwhile.
