Thread Name: Money v Folk
Subject: RE: Money v Folk
Aside from informal jams and singalongs I have always paid something to hear folk music and was more than glad to do it.In the sense that folk performers are paid I suppose they could be called professionals. God knows, money is welcome to all of us!My love of folk music is rooted in the fact that profit is not the be-all and end-all of the music; quality replaces unintelligible lyrics and special effects.
"What is folk music?" To paraphrase, "Ah, let me count the types"!
