Living Tradition Magazine Features Article by Lisa Null

The most recent issue of Living Tradition, a British magazine for those interested in the traditional music of Scotland, Ireland, England and with less emphasis, North America, features an autobiographical article on the American folk revival by Elisabeth Null. Although this well-produced magazine generally limits the reading of articles to subscribers, they have generously posted Null’s on their website as a means of expanding interest in Living Tradition among Americans. Toward the end of the article, Null points out a few of the differing characteristics between British and American revival performers, as she knew them during her heavy touring days in the late seventies/early eighties. The article also demonstrates how some revivalists use traditional or traditionally-rooted folksong today. Observations were in response to questions Null was asked, and draw from her own experience rather than any sort of disciplined research.
