Thread Name: What does the term 'folk process' mean?
Subject: RE: What does the term 'folk process' mean?
In Faith Petric's Folk Process column in the current
Sing Out magazine ( pages 90 - 93) has such songs as
"The New Wayfaring Stranger" which says this:
"I am a poor wayfaring stranger,
Travellin' through this world of greed,
Where some have none, they starve and stumble,
While others horde more than they need"
and a version of "Wake up Darlin' Corey"
with lyrics in memory of Rachel Corey,
and other songs including one sung to
"Scarborough Fair" which goes:
"Are you going to the Armaments Fair,
Martin, Vickers, Krupp and Lockheed
Remember me to one who deals there,
Does he still sell the death we all need?"
If you have songs you would like to submit,
you can direct them
"The Folk Process" c/o Faith Petric
