GUEST,Derrick The current state of folk music in UK (2105* d) RE: The current state of folk music in UK 31 Oct 19

Looking through the Wiki lists I estimate about 75 percent of the songs given on the British, Roud,and Cornish lists I have never heard sung in
the local clubs I have been to over the years. I have heard a great number of trad and contempory (in the folk Style such as MacColl)far more than the material Jim deplores.
I think most attempts to produce a list of what people consider folk songs are subject to the writers own opinion and largely a waste of paper.
