Thread Name: Is there a future for traditional music
Subject: RE: Is there a future for traditional music
I've often thought that the folk boom of the 50's and 60's was a rejection of the atomic era and it's technology. And it wouldn't suprise me if in the coming information era that we see the same thing happen. While embracing the new technology people will also want to return to simpler values also. As Guy Clark sings : "Stuff that works, stuff that holds up - the kind of stuff you reach for when you fall". Let's hope so. The emotions that are expressed in folk and traditional music will always be with us. I think the music that expresses those emotions will also.
