    I can't say I'm too versed in Folk music, but I do like Mumford and Sons (Little Lion Man is great!). My hubby and I were just talking about this yesterday....I don't like country music, but Folk and Bluegrass definitely strikes a chord in me. I love the banjo!

    Hi,

    John Lennon said that all music is folk music.

    It's made by folk and listened to by folk.

    John Lennon was a very clever man who lived in the twentieth century.

    Oh man, I TOTALLY listen to folk music. Bob Dylan is my GOD (even after he plugged in at Newport and p*ssed the folkies off!). Gimme some Dave Van Ronk, some Phil Ochs, some Kinky Freidman (Kinky? Who's Keenky?) alla dat stuff...

    But then I dig ALL music to some degree or other. It is, as they say, ALL GOOD.

    BBC TV in the UK has just finished a superb series called 'Folk America' spread out over a few weeks which traced the development of folk in the US from way back to today - if it ever comes on in your area or is released on DVD. don't miss it!

    The last thing in the series was a concert filmed a few weeks ago with Judy Collins, Roger McGuinn and Carolyn Hester - marvellous!

    "Folk America"? And nobody on the board has jumped on this as an example of USA-bashing?

    We all float down here.

    Meaning like that cool song by that old dude in the Watchmen credits? (That was a joke.)

    Did people really listen to that stuff at one point? Seems like the world has moved on for sure.
