Thread Name: Folk Process - is it dead?
Subject: RE: Folk Process - is it dead?
No, certainly not, and more or less (not necessarily all, but enough of them to ascertain that the songs 'took') - in that order.
"The academic definitions are just that, purely academic and bear little relationship to what is going on in the real world."
Once again you are telling us what is relevant to your "real world" (how do you apply to join - I seem to have been missing out)?.
The reality of 'the real world' is that by and large most people don't give a toss about folk music (whatever the definition).
I will admit that we are all here due to academic tossers like Sharp, Child and Bronson, and we took much of our definition (and songs) from their academic ramblings - what did they know?
"white rabbit with a pocket watch or a dormouse in a teapot." you see many?"
Yup, just spotted a beauty - welcome to the thread.
