GUEST,Some bloke Writing a folk standard (167* d) RE: Writing a folk standard 07 Nov 16


Still chuckling over sweeping statements that "Irish clubs are restrictive."

There are many folk standards written in Ireland. Granted, whether they were written recently by whoever or are lost in the trad mist of time, you can always find websites stating they were written by Christie Moore or a n other member of The Dubliners.

Tell you what Jim, the voice may well be an unrestrictive musical instrument but the typed words can be somewhat restrictive eh?

I love an audience who will sit hanging on my every word as I describe the history and provenance of a song or tune before I play it but I also accept that most folk music is, as has been for the last sixty years enjoyed by bums on seats who like the noise it makes.

Off yer high horse
