Thread Name: Folklore: What are the Motives of the Re-definers?
Subject: RE: Folklore: What are the Motives of the Re-definers?
The interesting question is not "What IS folk music?"
The interesting quesiton is "What has been called 'folk music' in different times and places and why?"
What do the definitions tell us about the definers and their context?
The most interesting definitions are always about the definers.
