Gedi How did Folk Song start? (57* d) RE: How did Folk Song start? 19 Feb 10


I know the Vikings were renowned for their storytelling so I guess it's not unreasonable to suppose they also sang songs. And since they settled large parts of England, Scotland and Ireland I guess some of that tradition must have been passed down. They were also keen on a pint I believe, so maybe they started the singing/drinking thing.
