Thread Name: Lyr Req: A modern folk song of your choice
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: A modern folk song of your choice
A big thanks to everyone who's replied so far. It has just struck me that this forum seems to be mostly used by Americans and Canadians - so I'm sorry for bothering you with questions about the current state of the UK folk scene! However, it's all still relevant. My main problem is right now that I can't find any academic critique of the UK folk scene and where it's heading (if anywhere). I'd really appreciate any good links and / or your opinions if you know much about it.
Everything I come across on the net just seems to deal with music reviews or instrument making or 'what's on' guides, and nobody seems to be taking a step back and asking serious questions. So: thoughts?
