GUEST,Rich(stupidbodhranplayerthatdoesn'tknowanybe BS: What is folk music? (69* d) RE: BS: What is folk music? 11 Mar 00

I agree somewhat with Malcolm (especially the singer-songwriter rarely having to do with folk comment). I like U. Utah Philips remark that "Folk music is not owned by anyone. we own it together like the national forest and the airways. songwriters make grape juice. It can turn into either wine or vinegar. If a people take a song into their lives and use it and change it to suit them and it divests itself of its original name then it becomes afolk song". [] Slan, [] Rich
