Thread Name: New Book: Folk Song in England
Subject: RE: New Book: Folk Song in England
'One of the things I love about English folk music is the way in which it stubbornly resists all of these generalisations and more. Like the English people, it's contradictory and inconsistent and wilful, and if you want to lead it somewhere, it won't follow.'
