Digitalfolksong.com is part of a doctoral research project devoted to exploring what lies at the intersection of folk music and digital technologies. This research has set out to explore this through interviews, fieldwork in both physical & digital geographies, whilst referring to a broad range of written & media sources.
We are making folk music in a range of digital contexts, but it wouldn’t necessarily be called that. Why is that?
Drawing upon outside examples from simple living, literary perspectives on nostalgia and hashtags, this research aims to see how we deal with musical identity in areas with intricate digital contexts and how we can better express and cater for this experience for musicians & music lovers, into the future.
