Thread Name: 'Occupy English Folk Music!'
Subject: RE: 'Occupy English Folk Music!'
I have next to no interest in rock music or guitars but fail to see what that has to do with the subject in question. I know what trad. means, I'm saying traddies are ensuring it's all in the past tense.
John P I respectfully suggest that hearing a variation of ones own song is not the seamless pluralism and timeless aggregation the definition alludes to. Or do we have that rare thing, a new stab at a definition, one which states how many steps from source is admissible as Folk? And it comes out as 'one'?
