Iains uk revival and Agents (34) RE: uk revival and Agents 06 May 19


I wonder if the folk revival would have occurred if contemporary folk was not present. Would an entirely fossilised genre attract anything like the present audience. Do folkies follow the tradition or compose and perform in traditional fashion. Does any performance in a folk club meet the rigid definition of traditional?

Unless a few broad definitions are accepted the arguments become circular and increasingly polarized.
