Vic Smith Critical discussion of Ewan MacColl's singing (165* d) RE: Critical discussion of Ewan MacColl's singing 19 May 20


peter kwennedy not collecting bob blake because he learned songs from books
Kennedy (I presume you mean him) never met Bob Blake. You probably mean Mike Yates. It would make your ability to argue your case stronger if you were to check you facts before making your posts.

vics argument is an affectation of the uk folk revival. tradtional singers and musicians both learned aurally and from manuscript just the same as revival singers.
It is difficult to reply to a statement that shows complete misuse of a word. An affectation according to the Oxford Concise Dictionary is defined as "Behaviour, speech, or writing that is pretentious and designed to impress." You would need to clarify your statement before I can deal with it. As it stands, "an affectation of the uk folk revival" does not convey any meaning to me.
Not that I intend to get into a protracted argument with you over the distinction between the tradition and the revival. I have made my point at 19 May 20 - 06:28 AM and intend to leave it there.
