Subject: RE: New Book: Folk Song in England
Readers of Roud's fascinating social history of the music made and enjoyed by working people will be able to judge for themselves, by reading the opening chapters, whether the way Roud's view of folk music is sometimes represented on this thread is accurate.

There they will find not just the 1954 definition that is sometimes referred to but also an account of some of the different views of what folk music is that have been forward over the years.
