GUEST,Pat Cooksey. Contemporary song in folk music (51* d) RE: Contemporary song in folk music 24 Jan 05


Every folk song considered traditional by the purists must have been written by somebody, however long ago that may have been, they didn't just fall from the sky. If we excluded everything written in the last 50 years from folk music it would be pretty dull, the days of the Farmers Boy, Jolly Jack Tar, etc, are long gone, and modern folk songs simply reflect life as it is today, just as the old songs did in their day.
