Thread Name: New Book: Folk Song in England
Subject: RE: New Book: Folk Song in England
Whoever said that Jim Carroll should write a book is right. It seems his life has been full and interesting, and that he knew many people worth remembering too. So it should be an autobiography. Describing some of his work and how it was done will also set down for posterity how the folk music he collected happened, its contexts. This is something he seems, unless I got the wrong end o stick, to be rather keen on putting over. With pictures ideally, as too much text can get dull.
