Thread Name: 1954 and All That - defining folk music
Subject: RE: 1954 and All That - defining folk music
So, according to the OP:

A "folk song" is any song performed in a "designated folk context"
A designated folk context is anywhere where "folkies" gather
Presumably "folkies" are people who like folk songs.

We seem to be in a logic loop here.
