Thread Name: Folk Process - is it dead?
Subject: RE: Folk Process - is it dead?
Jim Carroll seems to have abandoned The Community in favour of The Tradition and The Tradition is a foreign country; people do things differently there. He seems to relegate folk song to the glass cases in the museum of anthropology. Beautiful, perfectly preserved and dead. Sam Larner, Harry Cox, Walter Pardon are noble savages from an alien, and now extinct, culture.

For some of us, folk music is alive and well.
