I first started playing guitar when I was 12 in the 1950s. When I carried my guitar in public people stared as if I had two heads, and sometimes yelled "Hey Elvis". By the 1960s it became "cool" to be a folk musician and everyone was doing it. By the 80s it was "uncool" again. Now with "oh Brother" in the movies and winning grammys maybe it will become cool again. History repeats itself. Young people have always been ignorant of the music of the previous generations and invented music of their own.But folk music has somehow survived, even when it hasn't been mainstream. Keep it going!
