Folk Scare of the '60's


This started it for The Bard as for many others in his generation. Who knows why folk music became popular, but we should be eternally grateful, as it led him to a life-changing discovery that much sooner. He still like the ones everyone sang back then, even though they were slicked up for public consumption. He has always been offended that the singers of the day would think they needed to add new lyrics to already great stuff. His theory why they did it - so they could copyright stuff that had been in the public domain, for centuries, sometimes. To heck with all that; if it’s good and he likes  it,  he’ll sing it, just that way he wants to!
