Hva er Folk?

I starten av vår Folk festival er det greit å definere hva som menes med folk musikk. Det ligger litt i ordet, men grunnleggende snakker vi om musikk av og for folket. Sangene hadde sitt opphav fra vanlige, ikke-utdannede mennesker og er blitt ført muntlig videre fra generasjon til generasjon.

Vi har valgt å fokusere på amerikansk folk musikk siden dens betydning for vestlig musikk står i en særstilling. Folkemusikken i USA på 1800- og 1900-tallet var folkelig og enkel i sin form. Gjerne kun to-tre forskjellige akkorder og med en lett sangbar melodi på toppen. De vanligste instrumentene var gitar, fiolin, mandolin og etterhvert banjo. Folk musikk utviklet seg til å bli andre sjangere som bluegrass og country, men med blant andre Bob Dylan og Pete Seeger fikk den tradisjonelle folk stilen sin renessanse på 1960-70 tallet .

Song to Woody

Bob Dylan var veldig inspirert av Woody Guthrie, en av de mest betydelige innen amerikansk folk musikk. Så inspirert at han skrev en sang til han. Melodien er den samme som på Guthries sang "1913 Massacre". Dylan besøkte Guthrie ved noen anledninger på slutten av 50-tallet og starten av 60-tallet, mens Guthrie på den tiden led av Huntington-sykdom.

Walking a road other men have gone down

Hey hey Woody Guthrie I wrote you a song
        C         G/H            D/A     G    [lick 1)

VERS 3:
Hey Woody Guthrie but I know that you know
All the things that I'm saying and a many times more
I'm singing you this song but I can't sing enough
'Cause there's not many men that've done the things that you've done.


VERS 4:
Here's to Cisco and Sonny and Leadbelly too
And to all the good people that travelled with you
Here's to the hearts and the hands of the men
That come with the dust and are gone with the wind.


VERS 5:
I'm leaving tomorrow but I could leave today
Somewhere down the road someday
The very last thing that I'd want to do
Is to say I've been hitting some hard travelling too.

This Land is Your Land

Det blir mer Woody Guthrie og nå til en sang han skrev i 1940. Melodien er en gammel gospelsang og Guthrie skrev teksten som et tilsvar på det han mente var en overspilling av sangen "God Bless America" på radio. Den er blitt stående som en av de mest kjente folk-sangene i historien.

VERS 1:
             F                       C
This land is your land, this land is my land 
         G7                     C
From California to the New York Island
                 F                         C 
From the Redwood Forest to the Gulf Stream waters
G7                             C 
This land was made for you and me.


VERS 2: 
C          F                      C
 As I went walking that ribbon of highway
       G7                   C
I saw above me that endless skyway
        F                  C  
I saw below me that golden valley
G7                             C 
This land was made for you and me.


VERS 3:
C              F                         C
I roamed and I rambled and I followed my footsteps
                 G7                    C 
To the sparkling sands of her diamond deserts
          F                     C 
While all around me a voice was sounding
G7                             C 
This land was made for you and me.


VERS 4:
C                 F                  C
When the sun came shining, and I was strolling
                     G7                         C 
And the wheat fields waving and the dust clouds rolling
            F                        C 
A voice was chanting, As the fog was lifting,
G7                             C 
This land was made for you and me.


VERS 5:
C         F                    C
As I went walking I saw a sign there
                   G7            C 
And on the sign it said "No Trespassing."
C7         F                        C 
But on the other side it didn't say nothing,
G7                             C 
That side was made for you and me.


VERS 6:
C                     F                        C
In the squares of the city, In the shadow of a steeple;
              G7                   C 
By the relief office, I'd seen my people.
C7                  F                     C 
As they stood there hungry, I stood there asking,
G7                            C 
Is this land made for you and me?


VERS 7:
C      F                    C
Nobody living can ever stop me,
        G7                    C 
As I go walking that freedom highway;
C7     F          C
Nobody living can make me turn back
G7                             C 
This land was made for you and me.

Portrettet

Woody Guthrie

Levetid1912 til 1967
Fra Okemah, Oklahoma, USA
Mest kjente sangThis Land is Your Land

En av de mest betydningsfulle i den amerikanske folkmusikkens historie er Woody Guthrie. Han vokste opp i en arbeiderklasse familie i de harde 20- og 30-årene, og mange av sangene hans handler om livet til arbeidere i datidens USA. Han skrev under 2.verdenskrig flere anti-fasist sanger og er kjent for klistrelappen han festet på gitaren der det stod "This machine kills fascists".

Guthrie samarbeidet mye med en annen sentral person i folkbevegelsen, Pete Seeger - og ble også en stor inspirasjon for blant andre Bob Dylan.



Dagens YouTube-video

Åpningscenen fra filmen The Ballad of Buster Scruggs

Buster Scruggs synger "Cool Water" ridende på en hest. Han minner veldig om countrystjernen Hank Williams som spilte inn sangen for en del år siden.
