Thread Name: Types of folk music you like or dislike
Subject: RE: Types of folk music you like or dislike

Quite an interesting aspect of much classical music was the extent to which it was Influenced by folk music


I had a quite long and as usual fruitless discussion with someone online on that topic when the BBC first decided to allocate a day of the Proms to folk music. Naturally, and to some extent understandably, my debater felt this was detracting from the classical nature of the proms.
