All music is folk music.  Louis Armstrong

 

 

Jazz I regard as an American folk music; not the only one, but a very powerful one which is probably in the blood and feeling of the American people more than any other style of folk music.  George Gershwin, cited Henry Cowell ‘American Composers on American Music’, 1933

 

 

You know a situation is critical when folk singers start wading in.  Rich Hall’s Red Menace, BBC 2019  

 

 

Dusty Springfield started her musical career with her brother as the singer in a three-piece folk band: they called them The Springfields  … The first British group to enter the US Billboard charts.  New Elizabethans with Andrew Marr III: Made in Britain, BBC 2020

    

 

I had ambitions to er set out and find like an odyssey, going home somewhere and set up to find this home that I’d left awhile back …  Bob Dylan, No Direction Home I, 2005 

 

We didn’t have the clothes that we have now … There really wasn’t any philosophy or ideology to go against.  ibid. 

 

He’s changed from what he was.  He’s not the same as he was at first.  ibid.  British fan post-concert

 

Woody Guthie: he had a particular sound.  And he said something to go along with his sound.  That was highly unusual to my ears.  ibid.  Dylan       

 

Fantastic.  Very good.  ibid.  British fan post-concert

 

Hey, her, Woody Guthrie, I wrote you a song, about a funny old world that’s moving along.’  ibid.  song lyric      

 

It was very much the spirit of the time.  ibid.  fan

 

The land that I live in has God on its side … Oh the country was young with God on its side.  ibid.  song lyric      

 

The process was new to me.  I felt like I’d discovered something no-one else had ever discovered, and I was in a certain arena artistically that no-one else had ever been in before.  Ever.  Although, I might have been wrong about that.  ibid.  Dylan   

 

 

Fan: What happened to Woody Guthrie, Bob?

 

Bob: These are all protest songs.  Now come on.  Bob Dylan, No Direction Home II  

 

All my sons are protest songs.  ibid.        

 

No-one had heard anything like this before.  ibid.  fan      

 

 

A deeply felt but essentially nostalgic rural vision took hold.  Ian Hislop’s Olden Days III, BBC 2014

 

The latest expression of a very ancient idea in art and literature – the pastoral.  ibid.

 

Folk music was the soundtrack to more egalitarian times.  ibid.

 

A huge folk music revival ... ‘The heart and soul of the whole nation’.  ibid.

 

Morris dancing caught on.  ibid.

 

 

If you’re in the harmony game, you learn to scorn harmonies like that.  Simon & Garfunkel: The Harmony Game, Simon & Garfunkel in taxi, BBC 2021

 

Oh we were on top of the world.  We were lucky sons of guns.  Our toes were twinkling.  There’s nothing that brings out your talent than hit records.  It puts you in such a good mood.  ibid.

 

We got hate mail … and we got plenty of that.  You don’t like it here?  Get out.  ibid.  Simon

 

 

He became a symbol of the power of the people.  Massacre at the Stadium: A Victor Jara Story I, woman, Netflix 2019

 

He was too much of a threat.  They had to kill him.  ibid.  other woman

 

One of the great unsolved murders of the twentieth century.  ibid.  dude

 

Victor sang traditional folk repertoire.  ibid.  woman 

 

During the presidential campaign we accompanied [Salvador] Allende to many places.  Victor’s songs were the soundtrack for that piece of history.  His music was essential to Allende’s victory.  ibid.  dude

 

Then we realised that the right-wing opposition to Allende was getting more aggressive.  Paramilitary groups were forming.  We saw how right-wing forces wanted to disrupt society just because they were losing power.  ibid.  musician      

 

He was murdered in the worst possible way.  Tortured to death.  ibid.  dude

 

The CIA was sent by Richard Nixon and Henry Kissinger to overthrow Allende and help bring Pinochet to power.  ibid.  historian  

 

For 44 years we’ve been seeking justice.  ibid.  Joan Jara

 

To the question, ‘In 1973 did you fire and kill Victor Jara?’ he [Barrientos] shows a high 97% rate of deception [less than 99% = inconclusive].  ibid.  Alberto Gonzalez, lie detector examiner  

 

Every year, the festival of 1000 Guitars for Victor Jara is held in Santiago, Chile, to celebrate his life and his music.  ibid.  caption    

 

On July 3 2018 eight retired Chilean officers were sentenced to fifteen years for their involvement in Victor Jara’s torture and death.  Pedro Barrientos was not included in the process, since he resides in the United States.  Although the Chilean judicial system has renewed their effort to have him extradited, Barrientos still lives a free man in Florida.  ibid.
