STORYTELLING THORUGH NEW FOLK
Story telling in folk songs
There are many folk songs, in all folk songs there is a story. Sometimes the story is about life of slaves, life during the gold rush, life during many wars. In many folk songs something is being described, sometimes folk songs are not about the hard times through life but, they are about the good times through life. In each country, there are many different stories in all the different songs. In Clementine a American song is about a girl who drown in the gold Rush.
