Thread Name: BS: What isn't Folk?
Subject: RE: BS: What isn't Folk?
I would classify two catergories of folk performers: My favorite type, which is a performer, like Art, who performs because they really like a song and want to communicate that sense of the song to an audience. The other is the performer who is up on stage exuding "Look at me singing." I would prefer to keep my definition of what's not folk to myself.
