Thread Name: BS: What isn't Folk?
Subject: RE: BS: What isn't Folk?
I never tire of repeating my favorite definition: folk music is music you use at the same time you are doing something else. Any music can be folk music if it occurs in a multitasking environment. If you play Beethoven on your record player and sit on the couch listening, it isn't folk; but if you vacuum the carpet while listening, it is folk.
