Exploring Folk Music, a discussion with music

6625 Penn Ave. S. Richfield, MN

phone: 612-861-3308


What does the term folk music mean in the 21st century? What connects the blues guitarist to the Irish fiddler, the singer-songwriter to the Cajun band, the folk-rocker to the cowboy singer? What separates folk from other music genres? How did folk become what it is today? Using live, recorded and rare archival music, sprinkled with tales about folk’s past and present, folksinger-journalist-author Scott Alarik takes a vibrant journey down the tributaries of tradition, to see how they shaped the modern folk landscape.
