Folk Music Description

In a nutshell, Folk music is "local music from out there" or "someone else's local music".

Contemporary Folk refers to post-Bob Dylan folk singer/songwriters of the 70s and beyond. Prior to Dylan, most folk performers interpreted classic folk songs or wrote broad-based, topical songs.
