I actually wrote a high school paper about what folk music was. I came to the conclusion that it is music that represents or can tell someone about your culture. But I'm not sure if I agree with that definition anymore. I think now that folk isn't a genre like the way that art music or pop music are not genres. They have genres within them. That's why folk music has been so hard to define. We've been defining it the wrong way.
