Thread Name: The current state of folk music in UK
Subject: RE: The current state of folk music in UK
"how did we get back to Ewan MacColl-"
Probably for the same reason Walter Pardon was relevant to this thread (and was hown off unceremoniously)
If people had listened what both of them wee saying and doing the current revival wouldn't be blowing for tugs, at it is
I am discussion how MacColl argued the revival should conduct itself if it was to call itself "folk"
I thinkk you'll find Paggy says the same and she is very much out in front of the revival - in singing and songwriting - even at her age !!!
If some of the names mentioned here are relevant to the FOLK SONG REVIVAL I'm damn sure they all are
