Thread Name: What makes it a Folk Song?
Subject: RE: What makes it a Folk Song?
I suppose it's only "wilful stupidity" if you ignore the so-called 1954 definition of what is a "folk" song.1954 was 1954, we're now in 2009.
From what I understand this arguement has raged before, it wasn't settled then, and it's unlikely it'll be settled now.
