Thread Name: Young Folkies - Where are you?
Subject: RE: Young Folkies - Where are you?
i think maybe we need to get used to the idea. it was an artistic movement like surrealism, or trad jazz.

when another generation looks at the old songs and maybe writes their own - they will take something different from them than we did.

They will be standing in another place , another time. theres an inevitability about it.

we may like the idea of a tradition - but we really we have no control of what will happen in the future and what they will think of our generation and what they will choose to pick up from us.
