Thread Name: Contemporary song in folk music
Subject: RE: Contemporary song in folk music
Why, out of contemporary writers, are you picking on people like Kate Rusby or Ewan McColl or Bob Dylan or Richard Thompson particularly? Why not Ray Davies of the Kinks, Ash, the Manic Street Preachers, Oasis, Beatles ot whatever? Why are people in the first category "folk" and those in the second aren't? I hope your tutor demands a little rigorous argument.
