MUS230 - Wednesday, October 27, 2010 Folk Revival and Protest Music - connection between folk revival and protest Tom Dooley - by Kingston Trio - this is a real folk song - started the folk song revival - was an unexpected departure from and a continuation of rock and roll - obscure and violent - everyone who was interested in the folk revival could be a part of it, as the pieces were not hard to play - the movement was prevalent to university students and middle class people Gender Roles - 2nd reading from Cantwell book: talks about gender roles in folk music Joan Biaz - born in 1941 - before she arrived on the scene, there were a group of young ladies who sang the folk song ballad with a more victorian feel acceptable to a more rich population - Joan was enrolled in Boston University, but heard Tom Dooley on the radio and was influenced - eventually dropped/flunked out of school, and found a folk revival waiting to embrace her - Geordie : strophic song, like many folk songs, there is only one tune but many different poetic verses
