GUEST,Jim Carroll Folklore: Is folk song really political? (103* d) RE: Folklore: Is folk song really political? 07 Oct 07

Whoops sorry Charlie.

"But folk song just is."
Sort of like Topsy you mean; it just growed?
Folk songs were made to entertain, to reminisce, to record events, remember people and events, to revenge, to be remembered, to assist political campaigns, to protest, to right wrongs or to own up to them, to ridicule and debunk, to poke fun at, to change the world or to keep it the same.......
Travellers.... "In some ways, they look down on "us"."
Not the ones we met over the last thirty years
