Subject: Arrest warrant issued for Richard Bridge
From: Richard Bridge
Date: 01 Jun 09 - 03:00 PM

The Folk Police have issued a warrant for the arrest of Richard Bridge, who, while proceeding in a variable direction in Markbeech, Kent, England, is alleged to have sung a Bob Dylan Song and a Who song; also using the riff from "Route 66" as a sound-check - AT A FOLK ALE - as well as having used rhythms so as to cause the spontaneous outbreak of dancing on "Famous Flower of Serving Men", and "Ramble Away"; and "rocking" (whatever that is) "Gentlemen of High Renown".

Further charges include speaking favourably of an Eric Kaz (contemporary American) song, failing properly to attribute "Coalhouse Door" and barracking well known comedy singers.

Allegations that he spoke of "Watercress-Oh" (Roger Watson) as a folk song were dismissed.

This could be a re-run of a trick used in a John Le Carre novel in which a spy appears to go public. Lots of others then pop out of the woodwork thinking it's safe.

So those above who have come out for Richard should watch out. The Folk Police will be feeling collars and checking song lists.

A spokesperson for the Folk Police said tonight

"We also heard he was considering playing songs brought to public attention or written by the Rolling Stones, Bad Company, the Spencer Davis Group, and Jefferson Airplane, in which case we would have pressed for the maximum penalties. The public need to be protected against enjoying themselves. It inevitably leads to hard drugs and the breakdown of society."

We think that should read Folk Police Commissar!

Ah - naughty40, to be fair to me the photographer had me pulling different faces for 5 minutes while he got the shot he wanted. He wanted me simultaneously (a) looking at the camera (b) looking as if I were about to drink my pint (which at that time was in fact orange squash) (c) pursing my lips as if about to pull at my pint and (d) smiling. You try doing all those at once - and looking natural after 5 minutes of it.


I look forward with interest, however, to reading the 1954 definition of me since I am September 1948 model (well, that was when I rolled off the production line, so maybe manufacture (or womanufacture) started just in 1947). 1954 was the year we came back from Australia (through Suez, not round the horn).

From another thread -

Richard Bridge

Oh, and in case any other dimshits have not got it the point of my "arrest warrant" thread is to demonstrate that knowing the difference between folk music and other types does not prevent enjoyment of the other types, nor does it inhibit the folk process.

I was beginning to wonder.

Has anyone ever made such claims? Sounds just as daft as Lizzie's rantings about peasants and professors.

Real beard, real hair, real tankard, and a real midfriff much contributed to by real ale.

In 1954, Mr. Bridge upon returning to the UK, landed himself in care. Unfortunately the only household able to cope with his Ozzie ways was Gram and Pappy Trad. Their home was a bit over crowded with dancers and musos that society just did not want. Misfits.

After a number of years hard graft in the Morris Dance Mill, the still young Mr. Bridge experienced a foray into the dark seamy underworld of rock and roll, much to his foster family's dismay.

Fortunately, due to the love of his foster family, the good work of the social care system and a really scary "unbrainwasher" called Bubba, Mr. Bridge came to his good sense and returned to his roots. He flourished for some time in the tradition.

Sadly age and dementia seem to be taking their toll, as Mr. Bridge is experiencing backsliding and a regression to youthful bad habits.

Let us all form a song circle around Richard, that he may be called back in the folk fold.

In the year '54 '54,
With Winston at the door,
And Eden, waiting for,
His chance to take the floor.

That's the year, oh yes indeed,
Some academic saw a need,
To up and plant a lasting seed,
And give us all a rote, a creed.

A definition, that to most,
May just as well be writ on toast,
So that all may stand and boast,
We are the ones that know the most.

I went to Australia in '51. Also through Suez.

Love the songs (apart from the tenet of yours, John - is it supposed to resemble Zager and Evans 2525?).

Snail, many many many people (particularly horse definitioners) here seem to think (or at least say) that I somehow disapprove of non-54-folk   music or that I think people should only sing '54 songs, or that I say that '54 songs should only be sung in the manners in which they were originally (whatever that means) were sung. Of course I don't and the '54 definition with reasonable specificity allows for the folk process (ie change in the songs) and evolution of the styles of songs.

I hope I have laid that ghost, and may the japing continue.

I must say that I have never noticed anything like that and I spend more time on here than is good for me. I would have thought that it is perfectly obvious that you hold the 1954 definition in respect and place great value on the music that it seeks to define (as do I) but that you are also enthusiastic about other styles (as am I, but not necessarily the same styles).

Well, they handed him his orders in Oxford, England,
Sayin', "Richard stay way behind the times.
This is not 2009, it is Nineteen Fifty-Four
You must never sing after that time."

Well, the artist he said to his greasy old soundman
"Shovel in a little more roll,
And when we cross that Dylan singin'
You can hear my Martin roll."

It's a mighty hard way from "Lord Randall" to Led Zeppelin
Like road with a ten-mile grade
It was on that grade that the folk police caught him
When they saw what a jump he made.

Now listen all you Folkers, you must all take a warning
From this story a lesson learn
Never play nothin' that would raise the FP's suspicions
They may take you and you'll never return.

Hmmmm... I still maintain anything sung by an inveterate folkie like Richard Bridge is Folk regardless of musical type (or even personal hype) and certainly nothing I saw in the YouTube video persuaded me otherwise. This is what Folk Music has become; in every Designated Folk Context there'll be someone like Richard, self-consciously doing their bit for eclecticism wholly innocent of the fact that whatever old bollocks they're singing fits the 1954 Definition like a glove. I feel sure an ethnomusicological study of the phenomenon that is Richard Bridge would only serve to confirm this.

So maybe it's time to replace the horse definition with The Bridge Definition: if Richard sings it, it is folk.

As a Folk Singer he does fit this description perhaps a little biased, as a solicitor his advice (free) in the past has been useful,as a beer drinker he can hold his own.

The difference is obvious. Will's beard can play the guitar. Mine can't. Don't even sound same. Simples.

My beard however is of a type adopted into the community and adapted by it (compare Brian Blessed) and I have been wearing it since 1965 - the height of the revival, so plainly it is a folk beard.

I prefer mine short these days - got a very expensive beard trimmer for Christmas - and I go once over all round the face on setting no. 7, once a fortnight. I could give Richard and Ken a run for their money if I tried, but mine would hold too much soup and biscuit crumbs. Still, keeping it short is better than shaving legs, I suppose. As for waxing - SHUDDER!

Never mind the hairy bits - its the phenomenon that intrigues me.
I guess melodeonboy, or more to the point, his shirts, must fall into that category, given his definition = "It's a gaily painted piece of wood, approximately 5 feet high. And when you walk past it, you are taken aback by its appearance and you say "Blimey!".
So, a gaily painted shirt, of approximately 50 decibels loudness, that makes you go "Blimey" as it passes within vision - just before you go blind yourself as a result.
Gefinately not a "folk shirt" as there is no place for the mandatory slogan i.e. DYLAN ROCKS, LES BARKER FOR PRESIDENT, RICHARD IS INNOCENT, etc.
Besides, I got this dimple in my chin which is a bugger to shave without taking off the odd bit of skin, so I lets it grow.
It has now been trimmed somewhat, but as it continues to grow, will soon be back to its grewsome fulness.

"Hoff" is short for "Hoffmeister".

There are only a very few places where I have used or been referred to by both names - and the 'cat is one of them.

But "Hoff Bridge" isn't me (as is neither that other Richard Bridge).
