Thread Name: right-wing 'folk'
Subject: RE: right-wing 'folk'
Not quite sure of your point, Matt. My assertion that Pete's political views were rightward-leaning is based on what I knew of his thinking, not on any specific part of his repertoire. We had many conversations, about politics and folk music and other music and various other topics, over the 20+ years of our friendship, so I knew much about his opinions on many things. I do not try to represent him as any sort of political proselytiser in his music; simply as one who happened to be both a folk performer and also, as it happened, a conservative in his views.
