Bounty Hound What makes a new song a folk song? (1710* d) RE: What makes a new song a folk song? 05 Oct 14

Funnily enough, sitting next to the OED on my bookshelf is Bob Copper's book 'A song for every season'

The sleeve notes say this: 'Bob Copper recalls the music that used to accompany toiling in the fields, shearing the sheep, or resting in the smoky tap room......he remembers toe occasions on which they sang.....and the people who used to sing them'

Ah, that will be a 'tradition' then!
