Do you have your local folk music popular with your place ?What is special about it?Are people paying attention to it and passing it down from generation to generation? Are you enjoying to local folk music at festivals and attend it?

I enjoy portuguese folk music. Not all of it but a lot. I have the music in my computer and I hear it when I'm in the mood. Sometimes I also go to festivals but not much.

i love English folk music and I am lucky enough to live in a village in England that has its own folk festival. I Think folk music can act as a vehicle for historical tradition, certainly in the oral sense blessed be

There's quite a good folk scene on The Isle Of Wight with several open mic folk nights and gigs all over the Island, there's even a folk music festival too. I like the Folk Rock produced in the 60's and 70's too though and listen to a lot of that rather than traditional folk music.

Yes, there is some Sussex folk music... I love to listen to the words, as they contain legendary folklore and the music is anciently charming. There is a guy comes into the local pub, who often, when there's no music on, starts singing folk songs. He doesn't have the music to accompany him but he's good to listen to. He knows all the local folksongs word for word and even some from the West Country of England. lol. I like Irish folk music as well. That's great!
