"combined with public brainwashing by "The Music Industry" buying advertising time to coerce millions into buying whatever it wants to sell this week."
As far as 'quality' goes, the folk genre (as a modern 20th/21stC phenomenon, whatever the decade) will probably only ever be at the top of it's game - like all good music of whatever ilk - as an underground music, with a passionate and dedicated core of artists and fans.
I'll keep singing songs composed by no-longer real people who have been dead for hundreds of years AND listening to D&B created by real people with real electronic instruments in 2010, just so long as they are good songs and good tunes alike.
