Thread Name: Contemporary song in folk music
Subject: RE: Contemporary song in folk music
I agree with Dave's Wife that Springsteen is very much a folk singer within the definition I would use. He has always sung songs about people you might meet in a cafe or waiting for a bus. Above all his songs are there to connect you, which I think is the beauty of the best of the older folk songs.
Good luck with the dissertation Murky Chris.
