Stanron Where Have all the Folkies Gone (187* d) RE: Where Have all the Folkies Gone 08 Feb 19


I like the distinction between folk music and traditional music. I have most difficulty with the idea of traditional music. I tend to go with the idea that traditional music is, or was, a construct of middle class insecurity. Perhaps even labeling music as traditional stops it being folk music. It is possible to maintain the distinction and also recognise commercial music as something else again.
