Thread Name: It isn't 'Folk', but what is it we do?
Subject: RE: It isn't 'Folk', but what is it we do?
If you don't make any money singing it, it's folk music... :-) I would think that we could call ourselves folk singers, us being folks and singing a fair amount of what is called folk music. I refer to the songs I write as "original," (although some could argue that they are hackneyed or re-hashed browns.)

I wonder how many people on here only do one kind of song? Not many, I'd guess. What we do is what we enjoy doing and it resists being limited to a single label.
