Bounty Hound What makes a new song a folk song? (1710* d) RE: What makes a new song a folk song? 22 Sep 14


'In my opinion, this is only in a club scene that no longer seems interested in folk song'

Actually Jim, I'm pleased to be able to tell you that's not the case with the clubs in Suffolk. There is still a healthy interest in traditional song, although the clubs local to me do put on a mix of what both you and I would call folk ;)

The Milkmaid Folk Club in Bury St Eds also promote concerts at The Apex, a 500 seater theatre in town, and I'll be there tonight with 300 others to enjoy Martin Carthy and Dave Swarbrick. In a few weeks time, Irish band Lunasa are there, and that's almost sold out already.

On that evidence, there is still a healthy interest in traditional song and music in this area.

John
