Get folked

Post by Watergirl » Sun Dec 08, 2013 8:58 pm

Link for the Channel 4 documentary. Very cool to see Frank alongside Dylan, Woody Guthrie, Billy Bragg, Martin Carthy, Richard Thompson… The list could go on and on.

Strongly disagree. Thought it could have been so much better.

It didn't tell me anything I didn't know, but then I have been interested in folk music old and new for years.

If the programme was called 'Get jazzed' or ' Get dubstepped' and adopted a similar 'one size fits all' approach, then I probably would have found it really useful and informative.

I found the narrative to be over bearing at times, and slightly sneering in places. Perhaps just my point of view, but I found it to be a good idea badly executed on the whole.

True. It was kind of a folk program for people who don't know much about folk. It was a bit far-fetched to get the Sex Pistols in there, although that provided a link to Billy Bragg.
I did enjoy the interviews with Frank, Seth Lakeman (beautiful location), Richard Thompson, Jake Bugg etc. and there was a lovely song by the Unthanks. Plus a snippet of Million Dead!
