What is Folk Music?

I thought I'd put some of the videos I post as video of the week on my website here, for those of you who don't follow my website, and for those of you who might miss a week.

I shared this a few weeks ago.  While I had noticed how much British composers use dotted rhythms, I hadn't thought so much before about how music reflects the language of the people. Interesting program with Leonard Bernstein. This is the first 10 minutes of an hour program (in 6 videos). This and the beginning of video 2 are the best for the information, and the very end of 5 and beginning of 6 are the best for music (if you are cello prejudiced like me - Ives Symphony 2 last mvt).
