GUEST,Some bloke What is a Folk Song? (292* d) RE: What is a Folk Song? 22 Mar 19


With you Stringsinger. Folk is a general term in my mind and if genres must be catalogued, then the term folk is the last one to use.

The idea of a few serious men with beards and sandals in 1954 sitting down and in a meeting with minutes, observing rules of procedure, accepting motions before the substantial agenda resolution etc and deciding what constitutes folk is ridiculous.

Especially as they referred it to one small European country...
