Thread Name: Us and Them: folk music and political persuasion
Subject: RE: Us and Them
Perhaps the Left-leaning folkies should take a hint: their material has a short shelf life.

I still love to listen to Doc Watson, Burl Ives, Ian & Sylvia and the original Kingston Trio lineup with Dave Guard.

There may be a few song by these people that are vaguely political, but they are timeless.
