Thread Name: 'Occupy English Folk Music!'
Subject: RE: 'Occupy English Folk Music!'
glueman, again you fly in the face of the definition. Once the new material has been (as I argue it may be) transmitted via the wider understanding of "oral transmission", been modified as described in the definition, and achieved currency in a relevant community, then it has passed the gateway. And therefore Lizzie's views about a conspiracy to stop her preferred music being called folk music are unsustainable.
