Subject: RE: Folklore: What are the Motives of the Re-definers?
You can equally legitimately ask what are the motives of the "keep it traditional" faction.
Surely it's a question of people needing their own comfort zones,
The Trad faction want everything to stay the same as they believe that it ever was.
The redefining faction want to hear a majority of songs in the newer styles that they prefer.
The Folk and acoustic movement as a whole can only suffer if both or either side retreats into an attitude of self righteous insularity.
Chill out, it's only music!
