celticblues5 Mythological Proportions of the Present (songwriti (83* d) RE: Mythological Proportions of the Present 23 Aug 00

Thomas -

I have to agree - I haven't read ALL threads since coming to the cafe (not having 150 hours in each day, alas), but haven't noted anything discouraging songwriting. I HAVE seen many requests for/praises of works by such modern "folk-style" composers as Malvina Reynolds, Christy Moore, etc. They (and others) have done wonderful work on both sides of the cause - commenting on social ills & encouraging caring for each other. And I would bet that a good percentage of catters have also written songs - even if they've never shown anyone ;-)
That was, after all, one attribute of a good minstrel - the ability to make up something on the spot that commented on current goings-on at the court.
