Bounty Hound What makes a new song a folk song? (1710* d) RE: What makes a new song a folk song? 14 Sep 14


Recently there has been a revisiting, but I have little doubt it will be short lived.
Sorry Jim, you've lost me there, since the advent of Fairport and Steeleye in the late 60's folk/rock has been ever present, and I don't share your opinion that it will be short lived, after all, It's already been around almost as long as the 1954 definition!

'The once again you misunderstand what I am saying - it is not a matter of debasing anything - it's a matter of it making folk song meaningless I'm afraid you've lost me there as well Jim, isn't that basically the same thing, so I don't think I'm misunderstanding you at all. Here's a challenge for you, have a listen to some recordings of folk/rock bands playing traditional songs, and then come back and tell me again you can't follow the words!

John
