Bounty Hound What makes a new song a folk song? (1710* d) RE: What makes a new song a folk song? 12 Sep 14

By the way, Jim, meant to say that I'm not quite sure of the relevance of the link to listings of so called 'folk metal' bands, but with that 'genre' it seems to me that the justification for using the word 'folk' is merely down to adding a 'traditional' instrument in to the mix and very little to do with the songs they are performing.

Very different to what I do with The Bounty Hounds, where the justification for using the term 'folk'/rock is that a large number of the songs we perform are ones that neither you or I would have difficulty in calling a 'folk' song ;)
