As for your worries about the 1954 definition, you may want to consider letting it go. I don't know anyone who plays traditional music who pays the slightest attention to it. Most have never heard of it.

I've been involved in traditional music for getting on for forty years and had never heard of the 1954 definition before I joined Mudcat. I have never heard it discussed outside except when I mentioned it to a friend who hase been involved in traditional song far longer than me and far more deeply. She found the idea of someone forming a committee to decide what folk music was hilarious.
