Frank in the swamps The demise of Folk Music, Part II (42) RE: The demise of Folk Music, Part II 24 May 98

I guess the Mudcat is proof that folk music isn't dead. One thing these "demise" talks have shown me is that there is a lot regional variation. Here in central Florida, the Bluegrass crowd keeps a pretty good fire going, but in my experience they're a bit rigid, if it ain't bluegrass or gospel keep out! The Blues have a large following here also but be forewarned, it's strong for R & B or rock and roll type blues. Classic or country, or any other branch of that great family isn't going to find much in the way of public venues. I hope people keep posting information about their local music scenes though, because I do get out and about the country (U.S.)sometimes, and I make decisions about where I go and how I get there on the information available to me. And I disregard commercial advertising.

Frank i.t.s.
