Actually, Joe, it makes me nervous too. I feel that one of the reasons that we folkies are often seen as a somewhat impenetrable set apart, in which it's rather hard to do anything without being criticised for doing something or other wrong or a bit untraditional, is that we indulge ourselves in long bouts of looking inward, as in many a thread like this one. As a relative outsider (a harmonica player of traditional, mostly Irish, music) I feel rather fortunate in that I can so explicitly and so boldly "do the wrong thing" that I never get criticised for it!

There is a likelihood that heaving chanties in port or in less strenuous circumstances might have afforded the luxury of harmony on occasion, but I can't see it with hauling chanties whilst out at sea.

I suppose it is, Dick. Which is why I said I doubt rather than I know. It is a fact that some people will automatically harmonise though so I will still say it is likely that in any situation where a group of people are singing, some will be harmonising. They may not intend to or even know they are doing it but some will do it all the same.

I had this discussion with someone from a shanty group, Steve. Yes, they were work songs and I would certainly concur that no-one purposely put any harmonies in. However, harmony happens whether it is meant to or not. Get a group of a dozen or so people singing and, whether by design or accident, some will be harmonising. May be because there are some notes they cannot reach. May be because that is what they hear. Could be many other reasons. But he was insisting that shanties should be in pure unison because that is how they were sung. That was probably as they were intended but I doubt that is they way they came out!

Nowt to do with the thread of course but an interesting enough aside I think :-)

Good points, rosma. Regarding chanties, they are today 100% heritage related entertainment and are totally away from the original context, so that means they can be performed in any way the performers feel fit. It is a personal preference to me to sing them in as close a way as I can to what I envisage was the original style, with the proviso I have other preferences, i.e., I enjoy singing in a group and improvising harmonies. I doubt very much any harmonising was involved with the originals. What I'm trying to say rather clumsily is there is no right way or wrong way, it all comes down to personal preference. We are entertaining/educating so we should make the best stab at that if we wish to succeed.

I've read about half of this thread (sorry if I'm repeating what's in the other half). It reminds me of something I mused recently. An acquaintance of mine is a shanty singer. He has been known to look down his nose a little at popular shanty groups.

I am perfectly aware of "traditional" shanty singing, but I relatively recently saw The Longest Johns a few times and have been inspired to sing some of the songs they sing, whether or not I'd heard them before.

My acquaintance recently referred to hearing a recording of The Longest Johns and described it as being the worst he'd heard them sing. He described it though in a way that showed somewhere deep down some sort of admiration for them.

I pointed out to another acquaintance that popular folk-like performers, particularly those who sing traditional or near-traditional songs, are capable of acting as a gateway drug which could, with the right attitude from us, get more people into folk clubs and sessions. If we sing a shanty in a traditional way, for example, and they recognise it, they may sing along, and they may even be drawn further in to listening to that type, and perhaps other types of folk music.

Point taken, Dave. But I’ve heard more bad acoustic guitar players then amplified ones down the years I’ve attended gigs in various venues in several countries. I’ve heard a lot of great music in ‘folk clubs’ and a fearful amount of bungling crap. In fact, can’t think of any bad amplified guitar players, off hand.

I don't think it does any harm to credit most people with good intentions whatever their beliefs are.

When I was 16 in 1965, most towns of any size had about three folk clubs. I thought (mistakenly) that it was a state of affairs that would endure. How could we possibly throw such treasure stores of entertainment and enrichment away?

I thought I would be safe taking a few years to get my playing up to the standard of the players and singers I admired.

But throw it away we did, and by the time I started writing and performing in the mid 70's, there only fragments left. And by and large the fragments were fought over like a basket of rats.

I don't think theres ever been much point in apportioning blame. By then most of us were living in dormitory towns, far from where we were born - rootless almost by definition. But some of us wanted a voice - despite living in soulless estates. And the songs we produced felt no alliance with basket weavers and the like.   Sure the traditional songs had as many valid virtues as Shakespeare. But the 'in the tradition' business seemed to many of us similar in spirit to the turn of century poets writing about Highwaymen in the age of the steam and early combustion engine.

I don't think we'll ever get back to the generosity of spirit that I remember in those early folk clubs. Folk isn't a dirty word to me. To me its been an artistic movement of terrific achievement. Whether it has good days in front of it is up to us, and the youngsters who come after us.

Al. "To me - artists and pieces of music float in and out of the orbit of what is folk music." is just about as perfect a description of how it should be as I can imagine. Thank you. Other people would disagree of course and, yes, some have done so in a way that is toxic. Fortunately, they are getting fewer and further between.

I also agree that a word in someone's ear when they cross the line is the best way of going about things. It only happened once in my 30+ years of helping run a folk club though I am glad to say. The perpetrator took offence of course and we never saw him again. But who wants a badly played, out of tune electric guitar blasting out at their folk club? :-S

One of the newer songs most oft sung in Scottish folk clubs is Dougie Mclean's "Caledonia" which first really came to prominence to the Scottish public in general through it's use in an advert for beer in the early 90s. That cover version by "Frankie Miller" was then released as a single and reached the lower regions of the UK pop chart. It is kind of forgotten now and Dougie's own version is the better known again.

Well this is what I mean about spiritual.

I'm not sure you can define and refine the quiditas of what is folk music in the same way that Thomas Aquinas tried with truth, beauty and Christian faith. And frankly - I'm not sure its a worthy aim - after all what is it for except to say 'yahboo! Sucks to you!' to someone who is pissing you off.

If you have someone who turns at your club and wants to sing rubbish - them to piss off. You don't need the 1954 definition and bell book and candle. sod off! usually does the job.

To me - artists and pieces of music float in and out of the orbit of what is folk music. The intention to be folk music is is largely illusory. Its like a venn diagram where the parameters keep changing.

This rancorous going over of old arguments is what imbues the term 'folk' with poison.

Yes, I see what you mean, Allan and Nick. I agree. I did ask for a reason, well two really. Primarily, if mainstream singers do folky stuff then it may become both better known and more acceptable among the younger generations. Of course we may get some critics slagging them off but that always happens. Secondly, I was once told in no uncertain terms that pop singers can never do folk as they are only in it for the money and any folk singers trying out new stuff are just wannabee pop singers. Good to see that attitude is not endemic :-)

"How does it help the image of English folk music?"

To be honest, it probably doesn't. But, one of the things I like about House & Land is that here are two excellent musicians who are deeply involved in the US experimental/ underground music scene, yet who are also knowledgeable about traditional music and comfortable enough with playing it to bring influences from their other musical lives into their song arrangements. To me this normalises folk music - it's not out on a limb but part of their wider musical lives. Jake Xerxes Fussell is another good example - a very good interpreter of traditional songs who is equally at home sharing a bill with rock and underground musicians as he is playing on more specifically folky stages (last time I saw him he was on tour with
Daniel Bachman).

Here's Jake Xerxes Fussell live on KEXP. He's got a UK tour in May. I already have tickets :-)

People write folksongs about the nobility like Matty Groves quote

Matty Groves is about arranged marriages, AND SOCIETY AT THAT PARTICULAR TIME.
the necessity for his wife to be buried on top because she was of noble kin, his lord ship was a psychopath and power freak,who it appears was not tried for murder because of his social position, not much different from john hardy[ apart from the outcome,because of his social position], or the nutter in "early morning blues"
however. it will be intersting to see what happens to the Prince who was a friend of Epstein., Have times changed?

Well with the best will in the world (and my will is in the top four) - are you asking the right question Dave?

To me it seems that folk is dirty, by definition. Its the English language you are taking issue with.

Folk is the music of the great unwashed. The Queen isn't folk, or her family. THe house of Lords isn't folk.

People write folksongs about the nobility like Matty Groves, and Sir Patrick Spens. But Lords and ladies have their gig and folk belongs with the mucky denizens in the mucky streets.

All attempts to trap it on BBC4 for half a dozen insomniacs and a couple of superstars who need a government grant and a record deal to change their guitar strings have been pretty shit - compared to the actual stuff of pubs, and peoples front rooms.

Blues doesn't shy away from its demotic origins and the fact that all the practitioners are skint. Why should we?

So, now all the silliness seems to have stopped, I have a question. What can we, the supporters of folk music, do to help repair the poor image that our mainstream media have created and perpetuate?

I remember the late, great Dave Weatherall (Jolly Jack) being particularly put out when I made the joke "good enough for folk". He pointed out that it was jokes like that that did nothing to help the poor image. He was right of course and since then I have tried my best to be positive about the image of folk even when faced with 'jokes' about fingers in ears, navel gazing songwriters or rustic Morris dancers.

I no longer run a club and have never performed professionally but there are plenty here that do one, the other or both. How do you help promote folk music and what do you recommend others do to help?

I was listening to Thought for the day and the speaker mentioned a new folk song The Lost Words Blessing written by Julie Fowlis and Karine Polwart, QUOTE Inspired by the tradition of Scottish gaelic incantantions.
a song based on tradtion and roots of scottish Gaelic incantantion
I find this intersting and it seems not unreasonable to call it a folk song.
The presenter thought it was ok to call it a folk song, and what great publicity for the writers of the song.
