Thread Name: English Folk: Harmony Singing
Subject: English Folk: Harmony Singing
Is harmony singing in English folk reasonably new?

I remember reading something by Cecil Sharp (or possibly AL Lloyd) saying that harmony was 'wrong'

I know the Copper Family and the Watersons, but is this style of folk singing a recent invention?
