Folk music is about love, and murder, and trains, and ghosts,
and unions, and the sea, and cars, and horses, and fairies,
and politics, among a (hopefully) endless list of topics.
As far as I can see, that's the whole point, right?
Bring it all on, and we'll sift through it and learn something.
Do we argue about what books are for... movies?
I have a feeling that the most partisan contribution to this
discussion is the gripe that kicked things off. Andrew should
promote any compilation he has to offer here, because he
chooses good songs done by varied and skillful performers.
Whoever was complaining (can't even recall at this point)
should give a listen to the song craft and leave his (her?)
politics out of it.
