L3 Popular culture: starting on popular music

On Tuesday I'll be moving onto British popular music.

What is popular music ? Why does it make people so cross?
Is there a specifically British current, and if so why?
What are the key genres we need to identify?

This week I will be looking at
The folk music revival of the 1950s and 1960s
Late music hall in the 1950s and 1960s
Big band in the 1950s and 1960s.

And the values, activities and discourses surrounding each of these topics.

Visit this link to hear three of four songs from the British folk repertoire.
