Subject: RE: Child Ballads survived in oral trad.
Personally, it's why I put such an importance on distinguishing between the traditional singer and the revivalist - not because one is more important that the other, but because we are coming to the songs from different directions with different outlooks and backgrounds.

what a load of squit,how was Bob Blakes outlook different, he was mixing with traditional singers having a drink with them and socialising with them.
the only difference was he learned them from a book, but his singning was indistinguashable from a traditional singer.
Ihave heard some squit in my time but this load beats any amount of bull
