Stay true to yourself. You will never regret it (for long; there are always moments when it seems pointless). I like folk music because it is real. It has real value, rather than momentary attraction. It is filled with real ideas and that's why it will never just fade away.
Too many people get sucked in by the "flavor of the month", whether it's clothing, entertainment, music, art, etc. One day it's beany babies, the next it's a video game system, or Pokemon, or InSync, or whatever. Later on, when the fad is past or when (hopefully) they have outgrown it, they end up wondering "what was I thinking?". Hang on to those things (and people) that have real value and you won't have to ask that question.
Good luck in life. I envy you.
