Jim Carroll Hope for folk music - Jon Doran! (262* d) RE: Hope for folk music - Jon Doran! 23 May 20


" I benefited from the EXAMPLE of older singers rather than their advice"
I found both an immense help - they new whaaaat folk song was and how important it was
They didn't always say the same thing in detail but basically they were aall coming from the same place
Much have what has been added has got in the way of people understanding the music and has led to less rather than more followers
The dream of the old crowd of revivalists was to add to the tradition rather than replace is, which seems to e the case today
What it boils to is that Ireland now has a guaranteed future for its music alongside a healthy experimental movement whereas in England, the old songs are teetering on the brink of disappearing onto the shelves and in the archives
Past disasters like The Famine actually provided the fertilizer in which oral traditions could deepen home roots and lay down new ones wherever the refugees fled to find new homes
