Thread Name: New Book: Folk Song in England
Subject: RE: New Book: Folk Song in England
And please read my list of the sources I believe to have made the songs - from MacColl's Song Carriers (which Steve Gardham dismissed as romantic rubbish)
"They were made by professional bards and by unknown poets at the plough-stilts and the handloom".
I am at a total loss to understand why I have to keep repeating this?
