Thread Name: Republican or Conservative folk singers
Subject: RE: Republic or Conservative folk singers
Folk songs, where there is any political or social leaning, are left wing so the people who sing them or listen to them will also have this political leaning.
Bascom Lamar Lundsford who recorded and collected folksongs for the Library of Congress had very unpleasant right wing leanings, as reported on the mudcat by those who met him years ago. However I can't think of anything he recorded being of a politcal nature.
