Thread Name: Folk Process - is it dead?
Subject: RE: Folk Process - is it dead?
Its depends how you see the folk process. To my mind Vanity Fair has been filmed and the story told so many times - and different slants given to the Becky, George, Dobbin and Amy charcters so many times - really its part of our folk culture.

Its probably a bigger part, of peoples consciousness than stuff in the folk process proper.

And I think if you're a working artist as the people who write folksongs have to be, that is what you must concern yourself with.

Leave the rest to the archivers and librarians - god help 'em. I shan't.
