Hester folk song politics (86* d) RE: folk song politics 13 Apr 03


Hi, Malcolm:

Thank you! Yes, it was indeed Rolf Gardiner I was thinking of (glad to know it wasn't some strange false memory). Poor Odin -- he tends to attract some less than desirable worshippers even today.

So then, would you say it was the later "Morris Ring", rather than Sharp, who were responsible for the "all-male" rhetoric? And not specifically Gardiner as I'd previously read?

I'd like to learn more about the Sharp-Neal fallout and its ramifications for the folk movement. Can you suggest some reading on the topic?

Off to read your 'Sharp in America' link now.

Cheers, Hester
