GUEST,CJ Can a pop song become traditional? (679* d) RE: Can a pop song become traditional? 19 Nov 15

Thanks Jim.

My own basic take on it is thus - when I'm in a discussion about traditional music and someone takes or uses the expression "folk" to mean acoustic pop, I say "ah I meant traditional folk" and that almost always clears the waters. As an aside, to avoid that particular confusion, I find myself using the expression 'traditional music' just as often as 'folk music'.
