Thread Name: Folk Music Dying?
Subject: RE: Folk Music Dying?
I learned dozens of songs in school -- silly childish ones, like "Tira-Lira-Lira" and weird contrived Victorian numbers like "The British Grenadiers" -- but the real roots of folk music which I soaked up were learned at home, from 78's and 33's.

Folk music is not dying, but it is surfacing through different channels. THings do change, don't they, ducks?
