Thread Name: Bertsongs? (songs of A. L. 'Bert' Lloyd)
Subject: RE: Bertsongs?
Tell us about accuracy. Seriously. You obviously have some ideal in mind.
Try and explain your point. Not all of us understand where you are heading with this.
Folksong isn't really journalism. Its nearer an attempt to mythologise. So presumably we're not talking about adherence to the historical facts, but adherence to the intentions of the original writer of the folksong.
Or perhaps I misunderstand you.....?
