Subject: RE: Folk Music Research.......
No offence taken!
Have a look at what I've done already.
This would give you a better idea!

I work for an educational research establishment called Ultralab
That also will give you an idea of my background.
My day job is "senior research fellow" (for what it's worth, which is not that much really!) I work at researching teaching music and IT online.

I aready am doing a lot of paper based reading, I just thought I'd ask and see what mudcatters came up with. There is not all that much on the actual aspect of what I am researching. I am researching into holding an online, synchronous session. ie webcasting a session to the world. This will of course be qualitative research and will involve analysing feedback given, in the form of synchronous chat and also a questionnaire given afterwards. What I am performing this side of christmas is just the pilot, so I will be testing the research questions and the basic technology. I already have the webcast equipment up and running and am in the final stages of uploading the website given the instructions. I have my pilot group, but of course it will be open to anyone wishing to take part.

I've already spoken to Malcolm at Cecil Sharp House, 1st and 3rd Saturdays, definitely worth checking their opening times!

As I said, thank you for all the links that you've given. They are most welcome. Some I've investigated already, and some I've not, so they're all really great! So please, keep posting them!!!!! I know that there are a few mudactters out there who know where there may be papers that are not readily available in libraries. What I am doing is not well researched, so I need to leave no stone unturned. I am also not afraid of being flamed! I am also fully aware of the numbers of trolls on the cat, but I can cope with that, So please, keep posting!
