Thread Name: What is psych folk...?
Subject: RE: What is psych folk...?
"I have difficulty with it being both without becoming simply a genre - the folk revival genre - that has arbitrary rules like any other popular type."

But isn't that precisely what we've got?
Or are you saying that the hyphen is in fact the very thing that prevents the full semantic assimilation of 'Folk' with a capital F into 'folk revival genre' arbitrariness? I could run with that.
