3 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The aim of this study is to increase the reader's understanding of folk music within an historical, European framework, and to keep the genre alive as a dynamic and changing artform. The book addresses a plethora of questions through its detailed examination of a wide range of music from vastly different national and cultural identities. It also attempts to elucidate the connections among and the development of contemporary folk music across Europe, firstly by examining the ways in which scholars of different ideological and artistic ambitions have collected, studied, and performed it, then by investigating the relationship between folk and popular music. This book will serve well as either a textbook for upper-level, undergraduate courses or as a research tool for postgraduate study. Ethnomusicologists will also have a distinct interest in the opinions postulated and examined herein
