Thread Name: Review: Walter Pardon - Research
Subject: RE: Review: Walter Pardon; Research
Walter Pardon has for me been a good source of song material ~for me folk songs ~ granted not (all) of the Child Ballad ilk but following the "Saturday" night sort of entertainment that people followed pre Television etc

Yes folk songs have been handed down over the years within families and within Communities and picked up by all and sundry ~ farm labourers, navvies and ordinary people who have and had an interest ~ simply we have moved again and if you wish to categories and parcel songs from an academic view point simply fair enough ~ life goes on ~ and songs are still being written in the "folk" style and some damn good songs too worth the singing ~ as I life and stories go on as is the nature with human beings and their faults and good deeds


Is this still Walter Pardon ~ or thread drift sorry
