Thread Name: What is a folk song, version 3.0
Subject: RE: What is a Folk Song?
A folk song is one sung by people who don't get paid for it, at an event or occasion where the singing is not the primary purpose of the gathering, but helps to foster the fellowship of that gathering.

A folksinger is part of the entertainment industry.
