GUEST,Argenine Folk music is for lesbians (80* d) RE: BS: Folk music is for lesbians 22 Aug 02

LOL, Big Mick! (er...Amicus Gigantus Miccus)

Har-de-har-har, Millwall

BTW, why do we gotta 'genrify' every musician?  Surely there are writers/performers who sometimes write/sing/play "folk songs" and sometimes "pop," "rock and roll," "blues," "country/western," "reggae," or "jazz."  (Right, Ron?)  Is that agin the law or sump'n?

Yeah, I think it's sad that an artist's following should decrease when/because her/his sexual orientation becomes public knowledge.  Sad when K.D, Lang's commercial popularity dropped after she "came out" as a lesbian.  Equally sad if the careers of artists like Holly Near should take a dive because they "come out" as 
bisexual or straight.  Either way, the world of music lovers loses.

And, LaFranc, I think you're onto something.  Grown men prancing around wearing bells and ribbons and waving streamers--- hmmmmmm.
