Thread Name: The current state of folk music in UK
Subject: RE: The current state of folk music in UK
"folk rock. "
An oxymoron Joe -rather like describing George Buttterworth's 'Banks of Green Willow as folk music
One is a non-narrative product of the music industry, the other a narrative creation of 'the people
If that represents today's 'folk' output it has been sold out
