Thread Name: Living Tradition and the Revival
Subject: RE: Living Tradition and the Revival
I've always felt that there would be more room for us tradition-oriented revivalists if the term electronic-oral tradition had been coined so songs learned from source singers through various technologies and electronic ways of passing on the tradition would be seen as of some value also. Ever so s-l-o-w-l-y these ideas are changing---. I hope I'll be able to see a time when urban folksingers like Paul Geremia will be seen as possibly on an artistic level with Lemon Jefferson.
On we go...
