Charmain What IS Folk Music? (132* d) RE: What IS Folk Music? 13 Mar 07

I've been interested to read a lot of what has been written here - a few people have exclaimed "Oh NO not this old chesnut again" or words to that effect - and I can understnd why - but some of us are less regular or newer visitors to this forum so please excuse our lack of knowledge as to what has gone before.

I'm glad to know that most people seem to have a fairly similar view to mine - it being that in folk music are elements of the traditional and the new and sometimes different instrumants fit and sometimes they don't but that essentially it is the spirit of the thing that matters... I think thats what I've gathered anyway...

I'm relieved to know that as long as I think music is folk music thats OK!!
