Defining Florida folk music is very difficult. Everyone has their own idea what makes a song a Florida folk song. Those who like traditional folk often discount contemporary folk, and vice versa. To me, it has less to do with rules and more to do with soul. Does the song or songwriter or performer have a Florida soul? Can you feel it? I hope the Florida Folk Show will help capture that soul, step up interest in the genre and, maybe, inspire some new Florida songwriting.
