Melodeon Who were the first folksingers? (58* d) RE: Who were the first folksingers? 26 Feb 00


Prior to C Sharp/William Kimber there were in England the Broadsheet balladeers who not only sang about topical events but also "traditional" songs that they picked up on their travels, hence the different versions of the same songs from different parts of the country. Perhaps these were the first folksingers as described in the original question.
