GUEST,Derrick traditional music is for entertaining (138* d) RE: traditional music is for entertaining 26 Sep 19

Folk song was the one of the entertainments of the working people,many songs made by those people,some borrowed from other sources.
The subjects of the songs varied from pure comedy to social and political comment,the singers picked their songs depending on the occasion.A song with a moral lesson might be chosen in one case a comedic song in another.
When it comes to a folk club a little information to "set the scene" is acceptable a ten minute lecture is not.
The place for that is a workshop.
