Thread Name: What makes it a Folk Song?
Subject: RE: What makes it a Folk Song?
Feral folk is the stuff I like, especially as it lacks a definition. I suspect any music played in a 'folk club' is by definition not folk because 'club' however you define it is the antithesis to the folk experience.
Indeed one might say folk clubs nearly killed folk music. Fortunately the music defies institutional ghettos and worthy taxonomy.
