Subject: RE: BBC Radio4 - Morpurgo's Folk Journeys
some uninformed discussion,
I do not think MacColl considered First time ever as a Folk song, i must contact Jim Carroll and ask him.
K Polwart, WHAT A SILLY BILLY, QUOTE.. A POP SINGER WAS ABLE TO SING A LOVE SONG WITH PATHOS,BECAUSE HE WAS NOT FROM A FOLK BACKGROUND.
This must rate as an entry for Pseuds Corner are folk singers a different species?do they not have Relationships?
What a load of Squit
if Karen Polwart sees this,
I cordially invite her to my next gig and i will sing her love songs, i am a singer from a folk back ground.
I have heard some love songs sung with passion and pathos by a number of different folk singers.Dick Miles
