John Twomey Traditional ? (6) RE: Traditional ? 15 Jan 99

All songs at one time had a known author, so were they not traditional at the time they were written?

Maybe "in the tradition" would be a more apt phrase. Many of Bruce Springsteens songs are in the traditional mode. Might he someday be considered a folksinger? Are Chicago Blues folk music, rockabilly, Bluegrass, Cajun.
