Thread Name: Folk Music Dying?
Subject: RE: Folk Music Dying?
You don't learn folk songs at school, even if they teach you them. In fact it can take a long time to get over being taught folksongs at school, and find they can mean something to you, and learn them all over again.

I think the best service schools could do to folk music would be to ban it, and say that any kids found singing and playing that kind of music would be in serious trouble. Before long folk music could be as popular among young people as the other things they try to ban.
