Thread Name: Folk Music Dying?
Subject: RE: Folk Music Dying?
Blessings upon Bev and Johnny and all those who take music to the schools. It is a rare music or elementary teacher who can go much beyond 'Skip to my Lou', and a steady diet of those old hackneyed songs could put our children right off music altogether.

They may not like it but any day away from the brainwashing they're getting from the media is a good day. Period.
