Frankham Folk Genius? (82* d) RE: Folk Genius? 27 May 05


Folk genius? Someone who captured the language of American people in song without formal training and by intuition. The one that comes to mind for me is Irving Berlin.

Just think of all the different types of memorable songs he wrote without the benefir of advanced musical instruction.

That's a folk genius.
