For you to know what folklorists and ethnomusicologists say, the following may help you: Alan Dundes, "Who Are the Folk?" reprinted in his Interpreting Folklore (Indiana UP, 1980, pp. 1-19); Bruno Nettl, The Study of Ethnomusicology (U of Illinois Press, 1983, chapter 23: "I've Never Heard a Horse Sing"); Philip V. Bohlman, The Study of Folk Music in the Modern World (Indiana UP, 1988, passim); Dan Ben-Amos, "Toward a Definition of Folklore in Context," reprinted in Readings in American Folklore, edited by Jan Harold Brunvand (Norton, 1979, pp. 427-443).
