Subject: RE: What is psych folk...?
"Not me mate."

The amount of people with a particular interest in traditional folk both here on Mudcat and 'folkies' in general, is I'd guess actually quite tiny. In fact it might as well be 'early music' as far as to what extent traditional folk is perceived as even being 'folk' to most 'folkies'. Ironically, regards psych-folk, it's possibly got more in common with some of the old ballads (thematically at least as has been touched upon below) than much of what passes as folk proper for most people today.
