It's folk, but not like it used to be

Canberra's National Folk Festival has always defined "folk" music widely.

But this year...

Friday night was the Beatles Singalong - I loved it!

Saturday night, Motown Hits reversioned.

Next year... the songs of Elton John and Bernie Taupin?


Perhaps that's what folk music is - popular music, some decades on.

It's a wonderful event.
