Thread Name: Republican or Conservative folk singers
Subject: RE: Republic or Conservative folk singers
I have always separated music from politics - music is too precious a thing to be tainted with political slogans or beliefs.

I have several personal strong social and political opinions, but I've never put them into a musical context. I also don't believe that a "folk" song - whatever that is - has ever had any real significant lasting political impact.

Just my personal two-cents-worth, Cathy... (and I'm from the UK, by the way).
