CHAOTIC STATE:
Seeger Describes
Folksinging Treiid
By JOHN BRYANT
"There are no hard and fast
rules defining the folk song in
America; the scene is presently
chaotic," folk singer Pete Seeger
said Sunday night.
"However, this chaos is a good
thing. Form doesn't matter; the:
important thing is getting good4
songs," he continued.'
"A thousand and a half badr
songs are written for every good:
song that comes along," accord-
ing to Seeger. "Hence the current
popularity of folk music can only
help the art. More songs are be-
ing written and sung by ordinary
people, who after all, are the real <
base of folk singing."

DAILY OFFICIAL BULLETIN

I

Seeger does not feel that poli-
tically oriented folk songs are any
more predominant than they have
been at other times. "Every crisis
produces songs with social mean-
ing," he said. The current songs
being written about integration,
and nuclear War are such exam-
ples.
Politically oriented folk songs
have historically leaned toward
the left because of their origins,
according to Seeger. "In Europe
the wealthy classes could afford.
to have classical music written for
them and performed in their
castles; the poor people developed
folk music to be sung in the streets
or while at work.
"Thus folk songs became asso-
ciated with the causes of the com-
mon people. When folk singing
came over to America it retained
its political leanings."

PETE SEEGER
... social determinants

Seeger also noted that songs de-
scribing day-to-day occurrences
are also being written extensively
today. These, too, represent a part
of American folk music, he feels. ,
Both types of songs are spring-
ing up in all parts of the country.
"I have never seen an area that
didn't have some sort of folk mu-
sic.
"Michigan, for example, has
songs left over from the lumbering
era, songs from various ethnic
groups, such as the Ukranians,
Slovaks and Scotch, and songs of
protest written during the '30's by
auto workers."
