Santa Folk singers recording non-folk songs (60* d) RE: Folk singers recording non-folk songs 28 Apr 08


Not a stage I've reached or passing through: I didn't care for blues when I was young and have never developed any taste for it as a genre. Though I did enjoy the humorous talking blues that seems to have disappeared from the folk scene nowadays.

It is a rare person that likes all kinds of music: people just aren't like that. They discriminate. My son likes heavy metal and doesn't like folk. His loss, in my opinion, but that's just one man's view. There's enough variety within the vague "folk" label to feed our own divisions - singersongwriters, traditional ballads, unaccompanied soloists, amplified groups, singers, musicians, Celtic diddley-diddley merchants.... just read Mudcat to know that most of us will find some aversion to one or more of these genres.

Do you really like every kind of music? Totally indiscriminately? Clearly not, as you post in negative terms about the music in folk clubs. I don't see why you're allowed to discriminate but I'm not.
