Thread Name: UK Folk Revival 2018
Subject: RE: UK Folk Revival 2018
"I could find little fault with that definition & just wonder if the 'folk revival' lives up to those standards?"

I think that is partly what the OP's original question might have been about, Jim, and it is a good quote. But from the outset the folk revival didn't exactly grow from within the community in the way that the culture of Harris presumably did. Though of course Harris is not urban Britain.
