Bert Hansell What is a Folk Song? (292* d) RE: What is a Folk Song? 09 Jul 97


Thanks Elsie,
I am the first to admit that my point of view is over liberal. I think you make many valid points.

At the moment I don't think that Mudcat is overloaded but in the future they might need to create forums for other music in order to relieve the load on the 'folk' page.

Having been a visitor for some months now, the most logical branch would appear to be one for Gaelic songs.

While most of it is probably 'folk', us Sassenachs can't understand a word of it.
But I'd hate to see any such branch just yet because so many of the threads divert into something in English or carry some interesting historical discussions.
Nice hearing your point of view
Thanks,
Bert.
