Susan of DT More male folkies: Why? (20) RE: More male folkies: Why? 12 Jun 13


There seem to be more female than male ballad singers.

I noticed, back in my undergrad days 50 years ago, and it still seems to hold, that there is an affinity between folk music and science/math/engineering types, at least in the northeast US. There are, of course, more men than women in those fields, at least among the age group in which most folkies fall. (I am a science type)
