WalkaboutsVerse the uk folk revival in 2019 (330* d) RE: the uk folk revival in 2019 12 Oct 19


" I have said we can recognise a FOLK song by its style "
No we can't - folk isn't a "style" it's a process identified with a social group (Ray and Jim)...I think good English folk singers have an earthy style as if from a social group that worked hard for a living - ploughing the earth or the main for some gold to gain.

And good folk singers from Mongolia, by way of comparison, are good at throat singing and mimicking their local natural sounds - rather than rapping or going into their sweeter head voice to mimic American pop singers as, sadly, the majority of young Mongolians and young English now do.

We need a huge surge in positive English nationalism, positive Mongolian nationalism, etc.
