Grimmy What IS Folk Music? (132* d) RE: What IS Folk Music? 15 Mar 07

I obviously have more faith in the robustness of the tradition than you, Shimrod.

Over the last thousand years it has embraced - and probably rebuffed - numerous instances of 'other' music forms and will continue to do so. The 1954 definition states, as a factor that shapes the tradition,
"Selection by the community, which determines the form or forms in which the music survives."

How could it be otherwise?
