Book Arts Music and Book Arts Folk Songs


I have often proclaimed that the book arts will become the primary form of artistic expression in the later twenty-first century. When that happens I believe that there will be a general desire among the practitioners to have book arts music to listen to, as well as book arts folk songs to sing while working. Since it takes a long time for songs to become known and accepted as folk songs I figured I better start writing them now. In the long-standing tradition of folk songs I have based all these book arts folk songs on previously written popular songs.
