Subject: RE: Folklore: Folk Music for the Middle Class
Stewart: This is a cogent, good and timely thread. I am glad you started it.

In some songs I write I use 'Black' phrasing; that is, I will drop some plurals or affect some expressions. Hell, I KNOW I'm not Black. But that doesn't mean I don't appreciate the culture, many of the songs, many of the songwriters who did come from Black culture. Imitation is the sincerest of flattery.
