Thread Name: What is a folk song, version 3.0
Subject: RE: What is a Folk Song?
Would it be fair to say that the definition varies dependant on which side of the atlantic you live?

My experience suggests that Americans are more likely to describe folk as anything played on an acoustic guitar, and that Europeans have a more limited definition.
