Thread Name: Folk Music for the Middle Class
Subject: RE: Folklore: Folk Music for the Middle Class
I agree with PMB and Russ. Most folkies are middle class (even if they claim to be otherwise)and having an accent or not is no definition. If you want some "rules" on whether to sing a particular song:
# Like the song
# Understand any terminology or dialect words(often a problem with mining songs)
# Don't put on a cod accent
Oh and knowing the words is useful as well
