GUEST,Stringsinger BS: Folk Communities separate but equal ok? (21) RE: BS: Folk Communities separate but equal ok? 14 Mar 10


"Folk community" can be a misnomer. What does it really mean?

A folk community is one in which there is a definable sub-culture, not a media-driven
commercial edifice such as rock or hip-hop.

Audience "aficianados" do not define a folk culture any more than a spectator in
the grand stand is a member of the ball team.
