Folk music is a bitterly fought over territory The original peasants who knew this folk stuff were located and taken into protective custody by some Victorian clerics and given the third degree until they sang like canaries The clerics then deleted anything that looked like smut and published some of it for thrusting young schoolboys and schoolgirls to sing before they took jobs with the Foreign and Colonial Service and died of dysentery and malaria Meanwhile some communists began to complain that all this folk was reactionary wimping about love and saucy milkmaids and lords and ladies with cranberries growing out of their brains and pointed out that factory workers and miners had also made up folk about blacklegs getting their guts spilt Then other communists ones with typewriters said that vicarfolk was all made up by Percy Grainger and Sabine Baring Gould who used to beat each other s bare flesh with glove puppets Folk song Au contraire I think you mean fake song they said Then some people claiming to be Bob Dylan said that folk was still happening and they proved it too Then some marketing departments decided it was a good label to stick on anyone who wasn t actively taking heroin because a label of folk guaranteed that an album would sell at least 23 copies So people who once leaned against a pile of unsold Joan Baez albums while they were not waiting for their man were now called folk It didn t matter that they d all written their own songs and played them on saxophones it was folk if the marketing department said so Enough of that Let us see if we can actually define folk The intro to this brand spanking new not to be confused with old Penguin Book divides all of music into three areas classical popular and folk So you know what classical music is right and popular is anything composed which isn t classical which ranges from Roll Out the Barrel to California Gurls feat Snoop Dogg Everything else is folk No one knows who wrote it The toothless old character in the Dog and Partridge used to sing it if you call that singinguntil he died of extreme old age in 1955 I agree with this All that contemporary folk is actually acoustic popular music This puts me in the position of saying that if Richard Thompson s band wails away doing a ten minute version of Cold Haily Windy Night with three blasting electric solos from Richard that s folk but Martin Carthy singing January Man unaccompanied isn t because we know that Phil Coulter wrote it But I say substance not style Faugh to all woolly definitions and all woolly bullies tooThis is a lovely collection The first Penguin Book of English Folk Songs was put together by Ralph Vaughan Williams and Bert Lloyd in 1959 The English part was deliberate as at the time folkies in England were being swamped with other traditions Scottish Irish and American English stuff was being ignored it wasn t perceived to be sexy enough At the time American folk was fuelling the skiffle craze which inspired the young John Lennon to get a guitar not surprising as skiffle was like folk punk and the Scottish and Irish stuff has brilliant instrumental accompaniment which everyone loved Whereas the austere English tradition is unaccompanied singing You can see how that could be shoved aside This new collection retains the Englishness of the first but changes its selection criteria completely Vaughan Willians and Lloyd were looking for the best songs but Steve Round and Julia Bishop have included the most popular that is the most widely collected songs collected from actual folk singers that is There are 151 of them They have let the people choose the contents Each comes with a printed melody and detailed notes So this book is a treasure for folkiesThis is two verses of a folk song In Nottamun town not a soul would look upNot a soul would look up not a soul would look downNot a soul would look up not a soul would look downTo show me the way to fair Nottamun townI sat down on a hard hot cold frozen stoneTen thousand stood round me and yet I was aloneTook my hat in my hand for to keep my head warmTen thousand got drownded that never was born
