Dan Keding Why I Hate Folk Music (78* d) RE: 03 Dec 98


If self righteous means self aware, if it means an ever questioning perception of the world around us then folk music is self righteous. The ballads and stories that have been handed down through countless generations are the fabric of our history. We live our lives in story, some sung some spoken. If that line in that song hit a raw nerve with our critic friend maybe instead of condemning an entire genre of music he should ask the question why it affected him?

If he doesn't like folk music I suggest that anytime he receives a cd or tape in the mail to review he donate it to a local library or school.

Its of great consolation to me that when the critic is dead and dust that song will still be sung and remembered.

Dan
