Thread Name: Digital Folk survey. Please take part!
Subject: RE: Digital Folk survey. Please take part!
Call me an evangelist, but a PhD - expert in surveys or Folk music? Which type do we want here?

are we evangelical about Folk, or do we shoot the messenger (who has sufficient armour IMNSHO)?

My approach was "This is about Folk, now what permutations can I wrestle out of the what is Folk debate?" And proceeded in a IMNSHO mode to ally it to digits, confident that PhD's can intelligently cherry pick what they find relevant. And maybe open a few doors to less sexy aspects - like my Stroud Audio History Archive. Given what is there, there are nuggets that fit, if not all of it.

aaaaaaaaaand, for once I didn't try that old chestnut:
any finger-picking style is digital!
