Thread Name: Is there a future for traditional music
Subject: RE: Is there a future for traditional music
To hell with tradition, let's just keep doing it like we used to!! Given the fact that today we are listening to (and playing) the same stuff our forefathers did, would it not then follow that our future will also be playing our past? I think folk music will always be around, maybe even more so than in the recent past because it has become much easier with modern technology to access lyrics and songs from places one would have had to travel to in the past.
