Subject: RE: Review: Killing folk
Folk music to me is real. It is not a commercial commodity that's sole purpose is to make a quick buck. It is the music of my ancestors and the tales within are stories of their life and times. I just feel a connection with it bc it really hits me deep. Modern songs (even though I listen and play it) just doesn't hit me the same way. I don't listen to commercial music period though. I have to admit even the modern stuff I like is underground and indie. I am not a DIE Hard traditionalist by any stretch of the imagination but I am thankful that there are people out there that are bc I love to hear them.
