Subject: Why does 'folk' attract so many teachers
From: GUEST,Teachers Pet
Date: 15 Feb 07 - 01:21 PM

I am not disparaging teachers, just a question which has niggled at me for some time.
In any folk gathering (UK) I have attended the majority will be connected with teaching/education. Spouses, siblings, friends or working directly in education. I attended a festival and photographed the group I was with and later realised that of the fourteen persons in the photo, twelve were directly connected to teaching (I am not but sister and many in-laws are).
Any other gathering there may be one / two but no-where near the ratio in folk.
This has crossed my mind many times in the past and wondered if any mudcatters could explain.

(I am a member but dont want to risk upsetting my mudcat teaching friends who may mis-interpret my intent which is purely educational)

Folk music was always the style of music that most focused on lyrical content.....words....therefore it tends to attract people who are strong in their literacy skills. It also tends to attract people who are interested in knowing about past history in detail. It's just natural that people who are drawn to folk music would also tend to be the types who would go into teaching.

Most other styles of music are more about "the groove". They're more physical, in other words. Or they're primarily about emotion/sexual attraction ("love songs"). The style of music that appeals most directly to thinking about and focusing on the meaning of the song is folk music.

It is a teacher's job to think, to focus on meaning, and to impart that to others. (at least it should be, anyway...)

I think there's a lot in what Little Hawk says as regards Teachers.
Whilst there are strong historical links between the Left & the Folk world on both sides of the Atlantic, Social Workers tend to be agents of social control & gatekeepers to services, consequently it is an unattractive career choice to many on the left.

In NZ most of the early folk clubs (in the 60s)were at universities and teacher's training colleges. Teachers were encouraged to use music and singing in class and folk material was perfect for this.
The Folkways records like Birds, beasts bugs and little fishes, School days and Songs to grow on were available here and school broadcasts included similar songs.
But don't forget librarians.

This may have been the case in the U.K. also Robyn.
The late 'sixties & early 'seventies was the period of my own Primary education & at that time most younger Teachers and virtually all Student Teachers were actively involved in Folk music.
Which fact enriched my Primary Education massively.

IMO, teachers are certainly not left-leaning. Quite the opposite. As was noted above with social workers, teachers are also agents of social control. A darned good estimate of how teachers vote is right in line with the general population. As to teachers being involved with folk music, most teachers aren't. However, many teachers do play instruments and are involved in music to one degree or other.

Perhaps the folk music comes first and the teaching second. Most people know or fear they won't be able to make a living from music, and teaching is an almost guaranteed steady job with a certain amount of free time to pursue what you really love.

Natalie MacMaster, despite her success, continued to go to university until she could get a teacher's licence, and good Cape Breton girl that she is, I'm sure in the back of her mind was a worry that she'd need a job of that sort some day. Young women in Nova Scotia, at least, have been urged to 'get a teacher's licence', if it was at all possible, for about a century. It was, until pretty recently, considered the essential back-up, the 'break in emergency' fire-axe behind glass, to be used in case of sickly husband, widowhood, or spinsterhood.

My God yes, Teachers and Social Workers, I noticed this phenomenon 30 years ago and don't get me wrong they're not all bad but quite a few are a right bloody pain in the arse! Teachers are great ones for, well teaching! the only thing is a lot of them don't know when to bloodywell stop! The number of times I've sat in a folk club and been 'taught' how to sing a chorus by a teacher on his/her night off!...like being back at school without the caning if you happened to make your chair squeak during a music lesson, strange isn't it that the only three times I was beaten during school back in the sixties, two of them were in music lessons which I actually used to enjoy!

Those who can, do. Those who can't, teach and many develop a leaning towards folk music. Is it "a lesson too late for the learning"???
I'm only joking.
Perhaps the intellectualisation of folk music is responsible for this and there again, perhaps not. How many traditional singers and musicians were teachers? I don't know but what they have passed on has taught us a lot. Could that be a connection? All depends on what your definition of a teacher is.
Furthermore, how many teachers have left the profession and become professional folk singers? I bet you can all name one.

This is surely a 'chicken and egg' chronology issue. Folk music (in England at least) was defined mainly by 'teachers' so it is no surprise that what is generally thought of as folk music nowadays attracts those who invented it in the first place.
Real folk music - if there is such a thing - was/is often far removed from that preserved (probably by teachers) at the EFDSS and the BBC.
(This is not to say, incidentally, that this is not good stuff - its just that it is only part of the story)
The music I heard as a youngster, sung by good old boys in pubs in remote parts of East Anglia in the 60s/70s, included music hall songs('Oh Joe the boat is going over' and 'Tarpaulin Jacket'), crude ditties and even contemporary pop songs ('The Glory of Love', I remember was a particular favourite). There weren't any teachers around to say whether it was folk music or not - although there were a few engineers joining in lustily on choruses:-)

To be honest, Sparticus, most of the teachers and social workers I've known haven't been what you'd call 'intellectuals'. I don't mean they weren't bright, just usually not that interested in literature or the arts generally. Perhaps it is different here, but teaching school has always been regarded as achievable for the majority of students, with a sure job at the end of college.

The folk process IS teaching. Not so much modern classroom or private tutorial type teaching, but an older more instinctive, natural process. Part parenting, part coaching, part leading by example, part demonstrative, part trial and error, part guided, part unguided, tested and proved by uncounted generations...

I certainly noticed how many teachers there were in the folk clubs of the 60s and 70s and put it down to their 'performing in front of an audience' skills. Curiously, I did the opposite. Learnt my performing skills in folk clubs, then went on to teach in a university.

At my folk club we had not one, but two school heads, plus three teachers. We're now down to only one school head and no teachers due to them all getting cheesed off and taking early retirement. On the Forces side, my nephew is a RM commando and is learning banjo - I had thought to tell him to learn a proper instrument, like a guitar, but decided this may be a bit risky in view of his training.....

3 possible reasons (from a non-teacher) :-

Teachers - passing information down the generations.
Tradition - passing music, etc, down the generations.

Also, standing up to face a folk club might be considered good preparation for potential teachers. There are some folkies whose heckling is so developed not even the most dysfunctional child could come close.

And - 6 weeks holiday in summer = freedom to attend summer festivals.

As a 'chalkie' myself and also one who has been botha paramedic and a Youth Worker in my evil past; I would concur with Little Hawk who wrote: "Folk music was always the style of music that most focused on lyrical content.....words....therefore it tends to attract people who are strong in their literacy skills. It also tends to attract people who are interested in knowing about past history in detail. It's just natural that people who are drawn to folk music would also tend to be the types who would go into teaching."

Alec backed this one up; and I think, correctly. Little Robyn also made a very valid observation in that (apparently in NZ) a lot of 'Folk Clubs' got a start at Teachers Colleges and such - it happened here in Australia, too.

Less so these days.

I must admit, it's the history buff inside me that hungers for the folk music I crave and the "need" to pass on history, custom and legend through music and song that drives me.

I'm not sure there are a LOT of teachers involved in Folk these days though; maybe the profession is attracting a diffeent type of persona? A helluva lot of teachers I know aren't at all interested in folk music and a lot more couldn't carry a tune in a bucket let alone PLAY!

However, I do have one question for Capt. Ginger:

What makes you connect Aspergers and Folk?

I have to ask because I am a teacher, a folkie and also an Aspie (that's what Asperger's people prefer to call themselves.

Merely an observation, based on seeing many of the traits reflected in and around folk music followers - poor pick-up of social cues, an obsessive interest in a subject, unusual tics and an astonishing ability with a particular instrument or style that isn't reflected in other aspects of the person.
As I say, it was an observation and not intended as perjorative.
