Thread Name: Ethnic Folk Music
Subject: RE: Ethnic Folk Music
In the late 50s and early 60s the term "ethnic" was used to separate traditional songs and ballads from the glitzed up things like the Kingston trio etc. To be serious about folk music one had to look to the "ethnic" performers who did it with the roots not only in mind but with the roots emulated and reproduced slavishly.
