Thread Name: New Book: Folk Song in England
Subject: RE: New Book: Folk Song in England
If traditional singing and song-making has been around for so long, where did it go - what happened to all that talent and creativity?
(Jim Carrol)

It's all around you, you just don't like what it produces, don't regard it as folk song or don't regard the people who produce it as 'the folk'.

Before we throw out the idea that the folk created their own songs, that question needs to be answered (Jim Carrol)

No-one in this discussion seems to be throwing it out.
