Thread Name: UK Folk Revival 2018
Subject: RE: UK Folk Revival 2018
I thought the first "revival" started in the fifties with the Carter family, MacColl, The Clancy Bros etc......Before that it was just Traditional Music since time immemorial.

defining the first is like defining Folk. Child was arguably a datum and C# spearheaded a massive revival and he was certainly a significant revival IMNSHO. But that is my perspective, others will posit Baring-Gould or Frank Kidson no doubt. Certainly there have been peaks and troughs in the fashion of Folk.

And as for the Braggard guy - claiming to be only a messenger as he tells you how to think - he can't even use his own language properly. Opinions they ain't. Let me see - how would you feel if he started telling you who to pray for instead of the religion** he does proselytise. His delivery is like his music - insensitive.

**or would you prefer - belief system?
