Subject: RE: BS: What isn't Folk?
what is folk music...Well I would say that it is any music that tells a story about some aspect of life, generally written in an unprofessional circumstance, but not necessarily...I think the storytelling aspect is most important...and the instrumental backup can be very simple to begin with...it IS very difficult to put a label on, it is sort of like when you hear it you know what it is...!!!
