I feel like this might cause a riot what with all the overlapping threads onlist atm.. I hope that this is more of an *aesthetic* question, and as such shall not be treading too much on the toes of other threads currently onlist.
Anyway, the question is a genuine one:
I've heard the term 'Folk Character' used a few times very recently onlist and by friends. It's not a term I'd heard before, and although it might *seem* self-explanitory, I'm not sure that I know what it really means.
So, what qualities, stylistic quirks and characteristics give a song, a tune, a voice, a performance (or whatever else is applicable) 'Folk Character?'
