Subject: Ireland's Favourite Folk Song
From: GUEST
Date: 24 Apr 19 - 08:42 PM

RTÉ have a new TV series called Ireland's Favourite Folk Song which begins this weekend, on Sunday 28th April.

After an initial open call for song suggestions, a panel narrowed it down to ten songs which will be featured on the series and then viewers can vote for their favourite of the ten songs.

Any guesses on which songs will be featured and which song might win?

Fields of Athenry
Wild Mountain Thyme (Scots/Irish crossover)
Danny Boy.(Irish/English crossover). Hackneyed, but truly Irish favourites.
Do Pogues songs count.. ? what is folk what is pop? As soon as you use the word 'panel' then cultural bias and trendiness comes into it... the emperor's new clothes syndrome. It is no longer Ireland's favourite song but whichever writer or recording has kudos with the panel members and their own backgrounds.

It'd be interesting to know how this list, when it appears, compares with the favourite Irish (or pseudo-Irish) songs ouside Ireland (e.g. in England or the US).

I hope someone who sees it can post the final list on here. We'll probably pull it apart, saying, "That one's Scottish", "This one's by Ewan MacColl" etc ....

...but if you tried this exercise in England on national TV, outside the folk circuit, most viewers would struggle to name even a handful of English folk songs.

These competitions are usually fairly useless and quite often damaging
Thhey are run by people who don't know the first about the music in question and are usually decided by similar people who have the ear of the media
Far more reliable to ask The Irish Traditional Music Archive or 'The Goilin' or 'The Cobblestone' clubs for advice, but these are usually the last people whose opinions are taken into consideration

To be fair Marje the title of the programme is seemingly "Ireland's Favourite Folk Songs" and not "Ireland's Favourite Irish Folk Songs" :-) Though I do kind of agree with others that it will end up as choose a favourite out of this list pre-set by some supposed 'experts'. It is like the recent Greatest People Of The 20thC which was recently on BBC. David Bowie was voted the greatest entertainer of the 20thC - but he was only up against another three people. Billie Holiday, Charlie Chaplin and Marilyn Monroe. Hardly representative of who the public at large might regard as their favourites. And I've always been a huge Bowie fan....

Yep Allen that Bowie one was ludicrous, as much as we all love Bowie at his best - he was not the greatest entertainer of his century, though he has his place among all the other figures. And in terms of recordings he made an amount of stinking material as well as total classics. Death and media sainthood makes people forget the trash.    In the case of the Irish songs, Maybe they feel the public need guiding in case 90% of them go for 'Danny Boy' or similar. Also conceivably, without pre-selection someone could orchestrate a hijacking social media campaign to vote for an IRA or Loyalist sectarian politically themed song. I look forward to seeing this one unfold.

RTE blurb for Ireland's favourite folksong

Bear in mind this is not about musicians or singers' preferences, it's about 'what song will you sing along to at parties' as they put it when calling for submissions (although in fairness, there were a few other reasons given to nominate a song).

According to Peter Laban's link that's half the shortlist - five more to come tomorrow (Friday):

"The public nominated over 1,300 songs, giving the Ireland's Favourite Folk Song jury a mammoth task to whittle that down to just 10. The first five to make the Ireland's Favourite Folk Song shortlist are The Green Fields of France, The Foggy Dew, Danny Boy, A Rainy Night in SoHo and On Raglan Road.

Voting opens tomorrow, Friday April 26th, directly following the announcement of the final five songs on the shortlist."

Nobody knows where most (or even a few) folk songs originated - all we know for certain is that they have been around for quite a while
Most 18th, 19th and a few early 20th century songs either sank without trace or survived only in print - most popular songs tend to have been quickly forgotten by the people (popular only for a short time)

If the public nominated 1300 songs then one wonders why they need anyone to whittle them down to 10? You'd think it'd just be the 10 most nominated songs and take it from there. Unless they want to engineer what the 10 most popular are - which kind of defeats any purpose.

I think it will be a question of perception rather than anything. As has been discussed before, what the general public perceive as a folk song may not be a folk song according to aficionados. As we are discussing a 'popularity contest' I think there is little hope that the aficionados outnumber the general public. These things are light entertainment, not meaningful insights into a minority genre.

"Summertime" has to be one of the greatest successes ever by someone Jim Carroll would classify as a broadside hack. It must have been far more widely transmitted orally than anything ever found by a field collector. (And the words are still in copyright: Ira Gershwin lived to 1983).

Never mind Ireland, it must be close to being the Anglophone world's favourite folk song.

Unless George Gershwin changed his job in midstream, the beautiful 'Summertime' is as far from the output of 'broadside hacks' as you can get
Popularity has nothing to do with songs being passed through a process to become traditional
The fact that it remains the property of the Gershwin estate means it can never be claimed by the folk - it is not a folk song if the term 'folk' is to mean anything - sorry   
I was making a point - not trying to start a 'what is folk' argument
Of all places, Ireland tends to not have the problem of identifying traditional songs and music that Britain now appears to have

I'm not interested in another 'what is folk' thread either.

But the 'folk' seem to have accepted 'Summertime' as the kind of song 'sung at parties' - isn't that one criterion deciding the winner of this daft competition?

To eliminate 'Summertime' you surely have to define 'folk'?- count me out of that....

It's not too long ago that RTE were contemptuously referring to Irish traditional music as "diddley-di" music
It's probably not a coincidence that exercises like these have only come to the fore at a time when traditional music proper has made it on its own terms largely without the help of the media - cynical opportunism
I know one of the ex directors of RTE - a man dedicated to traditional music - he often spoke about his struggles with 'them upstairs'
The Irish language channel, TG4 has always given traditional music its share of airspace

In your own words, Jim, pop songs are quickly forgotten and don't last long. Porgy and Bess was first performed in 1935 and is still selling out nearly 85 years later so I guess it is not really a pop song by your definition is it? I wish you would make your mind up! Or at least just give us enjoying folk music in England a break for just one thread.

Anyway, Morris practise calls. I shall just go off and play those tunes of no consequence that no one ever hears any more in England and leave you to cry into your beer over Englands past glories...

I may be an old fart, but surely more of the Irish people are likely to know songs like 'Wild Mountain Thyme' than lesser known Pogues songs, like a 'Rainy Night..' Then Bogle's 'Green Fields of France' is not quite on the public conscious scale of 'Wild Rover' 'Whiskey in the Jar, 'I'll Tell Me Ma' etc. In terms of the Pogues 'Fairytale of New York' is in a way now a modern seasonal folk song and known to everyone. Clearly the selection 'panel' have skewed the choices of the people. I'd love to see the actual proportional voting figures and not what the panel selected. Obviously sectarian/rebel songs on both sides would have polled as well. List programmes though are lazy programming. Not as bad though as Channel 5's Nation's favourite biscuit, sweets and other vacuous space fillers.

Most disappear shortly after they have run their commercial value - others become 'standards' - still pop but old pop
It's a great song - one of namy I play regularly, lik mid career Sinatra, or Billie Holliday, or Ella....
Dooesn't make them anyything other tha what they are - certainly not folk
