Re the post from John from Kemsing saying that the UK census lumps us all together. There isn't actually a single UK census. We have different census questionnaires. The 2011 Scottish one in the Country of Birth section asks for country of birth and gives tick boxes for Scotland, England, Wales, Northern Ireland and also the Republic of Ireland plus there is space to fill in freehand if it is somewhere else. Likewise in the National Identity Section it gives tick boxes for Scottish, English, Northern Irish, Welsh or British (tick all that apply) plus space for freehand if somewhere else. Then in the ethnicity section it enables you to break these down further into "white Scottish etc etc etc" or "Asian Scottish etc etc etc"

That map is a bit too detail-heavy to load on my phone, but I think I know it from before. Dalkeith, not far from where I live, was the worst place for witch-hunting, though the only place where we'd have an overlap with the folk map would be North Berwick, with the surviving chant from 1592. Its major tourist draw now is golf, but raising a storm to kill the king has to be more topical.

An annotated map that actually does what this thread has printed on the tin should be perfectly doable these days, with user-contributed content labelling the locations - places described in songs or with tunes associated with them, places where performers or collectors worked, locations of libraries or instrument collections, folk-related graves...

Huw Williams, who now manages Calan, trvelled to America to make a programme about the Rock Island Line for Radio Wales, repeated on BBC Radio 4 in 2010.

From timscoverstory; We will finish with one more observation about Lonnie Donegan. He frequently complained that he received only a £10 fee for his recording of Rock Island Line, his biggest hit. Technically, this is true – Donegan was paid “scale” as a musician for recording the song.

However, Donegan conveniently forgot to mention that he had copyrighted the song Rock Island Line. Thus, although the song had a substantial history before Donegan ever encountered it, and though Donegan basically produced a note-for-note copy of Leadbelly’s tune, Donegan subsequently received all of the music royalties from the song.

Furthermore, if someone later produced a version of the song, Donegan would then receive additional songwriting royalties! So, not only did Lonnie Donegan reap a bountiful harvest of copyright royalties from Rock Island Line, he did so at the expense of Leadbelly, and conceivably also Kelly Pace who fashioned the first modern version of this song.

Re episode 3, notice how (apart from stating that their national instrument - the triple harp - originally came for Italy) Welsh folkies, unlike English on Episode 2 (as I said above), felt no need to say this or that tune/song is not really Welsh and they don't have passports anyway...don't you think modern English could at least be a bit more nationalistic?

Than said, I enjoyed most of it - apart from the Manic Street Preachers and their heavily Americanised look-I'm-almost-Jon-Bon-Jovi rubbish.

Geoff came to our folk club with his black concertina job, along with his mates in Jinx's Stack, in nineteen ninety early something. He played hardly anything and was a bit scathing about some of us who were just starting out and who were admittedly green behind the ears. It wasn't a great night to be honest.

As expected, the "it's not really an English tune/song and they don't have a passport, anyway" voices were much more prominent in Episode 2 than suchlike on the Scottish Episode 1. But then Scotland has about 20% less badly overpaid foreign footballers than the 70% of England's "Premier" League/foreign farce.

And these are the same pro-diversity voices of the BBC's little club who share, on a kind of rotation, awards at their annual folk awards, as the beeb vainly tries to help keep the blasphemous kingdom together.

This is how RTE sees Irish folk music.

Folk Season; To mark the inaugural RTÉ Radio 1 Folk Awards which took place in Vicar Street on 25 October 2018, RTÉ Radio 1 presents an accompanying five part feature series exploring some of the myriad strands that make up the world of Irish folk music.

In Search of Song; English singer and song collector, Sam Lee, meets some of the Irish traveller families from whom the late Tom Munnelly collected songs in the 1970s. The programme includes original recordings by Tom Munnelly from the National Folklore Collection UCD and archive material from the RTÉ Archives - listen here.

Sounding the New Tradition; Featuring Martin Hayes and the music of Loah and Nava, we take a look at how the merging of cultures is reflected in the music of Ireland at the moment - listen here.

The Summer of Astral Weeks; As 1968 began, Van Morrison was at his lowest ebb, but as 1968 drew to a close, he had transformed the sound of his music, signed to Warner Brothers, and recorded Astral Weeks - now regarded as one of the greatest album of all time. How did Van Morrison turn his life and career around so dramatically that year? And who were the people and what were the events that made it possible? - listen here.

The Road Well Travelled; Niamh Dunne is the fiddler in Beoga, Ed Sheeran’s favourite Irish band. In The Road Well Travelled, she delves into her musical heritage alongside her father, piper Mickey Dunne. Her grand-uncles The Blind Dunne Brothers were very popular travelling musicians who toured Ireland in the 50s and 60s, and for the first time Niamh takes a closer look at her rich family history - listen here.

Sing It Out Loud; Sing It Out Loud looks at the Irish protest songs of today; who is singing them, what are they about and do they have any impact at all? The programme features Terry Moylan, Aileen Dillane, Stephen James Smith and Lisa O’Neill - listen here.

Jack makes a valid point about the mono cultural nature of the artists featured but I think that, given the short time allocated to each programme, it would be impossible to cover a wider cultural scene - and I say that who spends a lot of time listening to music from cultures across the world, some of which is created in the UK. Perhaps the time spent on the connections to Dylan could have been better spent exploring multi cultural music in the UK though it could then be regarded as tokenism. Music Planet on Radio 3 - albeit much shorter than it used to be - provides good coverage of multi cultural music

I enjoyed the England programme more than the Scotland one - though I could have done without Fishermen's Friends. I think generally they had a good spread of music reasonably representative of the more popular end of the folk scene today but I was surprised John Tams, one of the greatest writers and songs in the English folk idiom, wasn't featured and I could think of more interesting singer songwriters than Frank Turner - though it was interesting to hear him as I had not come across him before.

I think we need to remember that this programme is going to be heard by a wider audience than us died in the wool folkies and, given that remit, I didn't think it was a bad attempt. Certainly far from the 'crap' suggested by an earlier correspondent.

Any chance of getting back to the point I made, that this programme is creating a fucked-up stereotype of racial purity (and probably on purpose)? Here are some statistics on immigrant communities in Ireland (where I think the programme is going next?). More than 10,000 Brazilians means there is going to be some Brazilian-Irish music happening, surely? A lazy Anglocentric dipshit like Radcliffe certainly isn't going to find it, though.
