Thread Name: New Book: Folk Song in England
Subject: RE: New Book: Folk Song in England
"I found myself thinking that the strong sense of rhythm in USA folk versions of British originals must have come from African influences"

Just saying - as this topic is another hornet's nest I would not want to be disturbing.
