Earl,

---"I think it does more harm than good"--- I can't say that I agree with you.

In the Fifties in England, Lonnie Donnegan did dozens of reworked folk songs which became hit pop songs.

In doing so he introduced a whole generation of teenagers to folk music.
I know he got some flack over here from certain traditionalists but overall it was a great benefit to folk music.

Bert.
