Thread Name: Contemporary song in folk music
Subject: RE: Contemporary song in folk music
Richard, the presentation you shared is very useful - and I am sure Chris will be pleased to refer to several of its elements. It focuses on traditional folk song/music. Chris' work is of course on the "role of contemporary song in folk music", i.e. contemporary song is the centre of his study, and its role in (and influences by) folk is his research area. What you laid out provides several hooks and ways of identifying and measuring such influence. Very good!
