Thread Name: Folk Music Dying?
Subject: RE: Folk Music Dying?
Agreed, LH. I can't stand the stuff; I was just using Rap as an example. Some of the comments which disparage modern music in favor of equating folk music with traditional music miss the point, IMO.

Granted that 99% of the music being recorded today is crap, but I doubt that the ratio was much better 100 years ago. The gems survived because they spoke to people.
