Thread Name: Moulettes - not folk say gatekeepers
Subject: RE: Moulettes – not folk say gatekeepers
"Folk is a recent concept of a music" - so recent, if fact, that it appears in Anglo Saxon texts!
"it doesn't sound out of place from 'the new folk tradition'" could somebody please explain what on earth that means?
I'm with treewind!
Sometimes you get really fed up of people calling things "folk" not because they bear any relationship to folk but because it doesn't fit anywhere else. Why don't they go invent some new term for themselves and let the rest of us continue arguing about what it is we call folk - or perhaps that's the problem!
