I like the real ale with twigs stuff.

I assume you mean the subtext of John Barleycorn Spygirl as it is on the face of it a fanciful description of how barley is grown and brewed into beer.

Im not sure.

I think the songs meaning has been twisted to say Oh its just about cutting barley.

I think the song has its root in growing crops AND blood sacrifice.

Even with yhe revisions, theres lines that dont add up for whats meant to be a grow and harvest song.

Golden bough and all that.

I didn't 'get' folk music at all until I was persuaded to go to the folk festival on Orkney many years ago. That's when I realised the the stereotype arran sweater and finger in the ear was just a tiny part of what was out there. Kate Rusby is great, seen her a few times.

I only like about a third to a quarter of the 60s stuff - which is not surprising given that is the standard ratio of blurt to blurks in your average 60s folk group.

Judith Durham or Mary Travers anyone...?

Woof woof...!!!

 

XYY

 

Totally agree on Judith Durham, great voice and chubbiness to worship..............

I want to form an obscene folk band, where you have to buy the record in a sealed metal case, in case it gets out. We have a few half hearted musicians here. We shall be called "Fiddler's Finger".

Can you believe this topic has so many posts and neither of us have started prattling on about Al Stewart?

For some reason, I never equate him with "folk".

Yeah I suppose. Folk-rock? Historical folk-rock? Who the fuck knows.

Let's just give him his own genre, called "Al Stewart".
