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'?
