Folk Music Dying?

Yes, and it has been since the invention of the radio.

What to do?

Keep on singing, in public, whether you are getting paid for it or not. Let people know that folk music is sung without amplification, electicity, producers, backup singers, fans, or any of the other trappings that the "other" musicians need.
