Subject: RE: New Book: Folk Song in England
To my knowledge I have never misquoted you Steve - if I have, you are welcome to show me where and I will apologise unreservedly
I find it said that your arguments defeding your conclusions have been so contradictory

First - all folk songs (The Song Carriers), next only 19th century ones.

Child changing his mind about broadsides - I've never come across that one
Schools of Broadside writers

If you still claim this percentage, where is your two-way street?
It sounds very much a case of very much one-way with a couple of cars going against the traffic

Folk tales, dances and music originating elsewhere other than from the common people

Sorry - until you start producing consistent prook the origins of folk song remain a total enigma

I would very much welcome the opportunity to apologise for misinterpreting you
