Thread Name: What songs can you sing in a folk club?
Subject: RE: BS: What songs can you sing in a folk club?
I have no idea what the 'rules' are. But it seems that a way to win listeners over to listening to something not 'folk' would be to observe that in every generation, there are some songs that are so good and beloved that they will (or ought to) pass into the folk tradition, and here's one I personally think will (or should) be sung a hundred years from now. (and if the song is not worthy of that introduction, rethink it)
