Quotations Marked

This is going to be a new “category” here at sixstr stories. To start things off, here are two quotes about Folk music.

“All music is Folk music. I ain’t never heard no horse sing a song.”

Louis Armstrong (1901-1971)

American Jazz musician.

“Folk music is that which remains when everything else is discarded.

It is where the song is more important than the singer.

If it has found a useful and essential place in people’s lives, it is Folk music.

In the end it is the sound of hope because it speaks to life.”

John Gorka (1958-)

American Folksinger, songwriter & guitarist.

[From the forward to “Folk and Blues: the Encyclopedia” (2001).]

There you go. Let me know what you think. Lots more where those came from!
