Thread Name: It isn't 'Folk', but what is it we do?
Subject: RE: It isn't 'Folk', but what is it we do?
At our Wednesday folk session, we sung Shallow Brown & Some Old Salty -and then did a jamming session till the early hours where we sung Neil Young, the Eagles, Simon & Garfunkel and God Forbid -the Bee Gees. I write songs in an English traditional style about events and communities in this country. I don't let the music define me, and I cannot understand why it seems so important that it is defined-although if you want it that way then that's fine by me. I wish though ,that we could talk more about our love of music than which side of the border we reside upon. (Please don't bother correcting my grammar-it's been a long and lousy day!)
