GUEST,Ace is folk music a drag? (47) RE: is folk music a drag? 22 Oct 01

It's actually a valid question, and my answer is yes - and no. Folk music has great potential to be extremely boring, particularly where it's about tradition for the sake of tradition - "if it ain't how it were done in my day, I don't like it". Folk opens up and becomes vibrant where new ideas are fused to and added to the tradition. Folk isn't just about tradition, otherwise it's a dead artform. Go the innovators and tradition breakers.
