Folkies, by nature, tend toward the less well heeled end of the financial spectrum. Not all. One could argue they are rich in talent and musical diligence but I quivocate.

And just look at the caravans and tents and cars. Not all are less well heeled. But it is infra-dig to bragg, as a folkie, how filthy are your riches - so the ones you hear are those that don't have much money. They either steward (would the angry mob here present kindly temper their vituperation with thankyous). Or the impecunious go to small, do-it yourself type festivals, that the angry mob might find too tame.

Different strokes for different folks. Let's face it, angry mob is a tradition too. But not very folkie.
