Bounty Hound Definition of folk song (137* d) RE: Definition of folk song 11 Sep 14

'Unfortunately folk has never become popular enough to bring about such changes
The term simply doesn't have popular usage when applied to song and any changes have been brought about by self-interested groups who either don't know or don't care what the term means when applied to song.'

You are so wrong there Jim, have you not noticed thousands flocking to FOLK festivals up and down the country?

'bring me a new definition and we might be able to discuss it'
You've had several from various posters, including me! but from your responses to my posts, it is clear that you choose not to understand another's point of view. You yourself posted a definition earlier in this thread, which you said you agreed with, only to twist it and add words that were not there and try to change the meaning of what was, when it was pointed out to you that this definition clearly encompassed new music.

Discussion only has a purpose if both parties are prepared to have an open mind! You are absolutely right, YOUR 'constant and unqualified repetition of the same points seems to be getting us nowhere' so I'll leave you alone in your insular little world now whilst your music dies, and I go and enjoy my 'Folk' music!
