Subject: RE: Republican or Conservative folk singers
It's quite refreshing to listen to Doc Watson, Ian & Sylvia, Burl Ives and other who left politics out of their music.

Even Stephen Stills, when he heard that "For What It's Worth" was being called a "protest song", got a bit angry, claiming a protest singer says "I hate this, I hate that, I hate fucking everything! I'm not a protest singer!".
