Thread Name: Folk vs. Country
Subject: Folk vs. Country
So, what exactly (in your opinion) is the difference between "folk music" and "country music?" Is there a difference worth noting? In my experience there is, but it can be difficult to spot sometimes. I've heard the opinion that any folk music sung in a Southern accent is country. I've also heard that any folk music with excess banjo is country.

What do you think?
