Listening to Terry Gross on Fresh Air the other day, she interviewed Jimmie Dale Gilmore who has released a new album called "Heirloom Music." I like that. Here's what he had to say about why he chose it:

Gilmore, a singer from West Texas, writes songs that would be described as alternative country. But for his forthcoming album, Heirloom Music — in which Gilmore teams up with the band The Wronglers — he says he was thinking more in terms of bluegrass music — although that's not an exact description.

"We were calling it old-timey music, but that still wasn't quite accurate," he says. "But [bluegrass musician and investor] Warren Hellman had said that someone had referred to this sort of music as 'heirloom music,' and I loved that phrase. There's something dismissive about [the term 'old-timey'] and our point is that this music is old, but it's really good and really still pertinent."

I listened to that program twice (KERA-FM 90.1 plays it at 11am and again at 8pm), it was so good. And I'm on the lookout for that album when it is released. I agree with Terry - with his voice and demeanor, he really should record some cowboy songs.

We just call it Vintage Gospel when we do it.

I saw that. It would be a pity if a lot of people got turned on to "heirloom music" and then missed out on the deep well already available in the "old time" scene.

Could someone explain to me what is "dismissive" about the term/s "old time" or "old timey".
Are they traditional/popular terms coined and used by those who actually play/played such music, or were they coined by outsiders wishing to catagorise (folklorists, academics, ethnomusicologists etc.)?
