Thanks for these thoughts, Miko.  I would venture to say (could be 
wrong) that we are all folk musicians in a loopy sense.  hasn't a lot 
of what we do been done before?  why are we still fascinated with it 
as a methodology and technique?  possibly because it's a portal 
through which we can express 'ourselves'?
