". . . no fun in folk music?"

Betsy, I've had a lot of fun in folk music, and even made my living at singing songs--traditional, or "folk" songs--for a goodly portion of my life. And I don't write songs at all. I know several hundred tradtional songs, and rummaging through various collections of traditional songs, I have found more really good songs than I can possibly learn in several lifetimes. Fun? You bet!!

Maybe you don't really like folk music.
