Subject: RE: Need input on youth in folk music
I'm a bit older that Wm above but very much endorse his/her points.

Speaking from a British perspective, I really like proper traditional music, but some of the comedy and singer-songwriter stuff that seemed to get lumped in with "folk" in the 60s-70s is much less to my tastes. Some of it is frankly a bit naff and hasn't aged well; the real traditional stuff of course is timeless.
