Thread Name: Eliza Carthy: Pop or folk?
Subject: RE: Eliza Carthy: Pop or folk?
Pundits do seem to need nice straightforward boxes into which they can fit performers. But I'd have thought Eliza Carthy was a shining example of a musician following her family tradition without any concern over what's self-consciously "folk with a capital F". Good for her - maybe the journalists will just have to broaden their categories.
