Thread Name: New Book: Folk Song in England
Subject: RE: New Book: Folk Song in England
Does it have to be an either-or? Lighter?
Popular music created commercially has long been with us - that tells us nothing about whether people chose to reflect their own thoughts and experiences for themselves in song, which is what I believe folk song to be about
If they didn't the folk has been relegated to having no traceable voice in their own existence - as serious as that
