Thread Name: UK Folk Revival 2018
Subject: RE: UK Folk Revival 2018
Actually, the remarkable thing to me is that the UK folk revival that Lloyd and MacColl started in the 1950s is still going strong - if not as strongly as it was - 60 years later, where so many other musical movements - skiffle, prog-rock, punk, New Romantics, etc, have waxed and waned and fallen off the radar. So much so that a 17-year-old came up to me in Glossop Labour Club on election night this year and started talking about Cecil Sharp (he also turned out to be a really good singer, unaccompanied or otherwise!).
