Subject: RE: BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2019
supposing some idiot came up with a definition of folk music, what would it prove - other than he was as big an idiot as the last bloke who tried to come up with a definition.

Insisting that the last idiot was right still doesn't alter the fact that the term 'folk music' is in common usage and means something very different from what Mr Idiot said.
