The terms folk music, folk song, and folk dance are comparatively recent expressions. They are extensions of the term folk lore, which was coined in 1846 by the English antiquarian William Thoms to describe “the traditions, customs, and superstitions of the uncultured classes.” The German expression Volk, in the sense of “the people as a whole” was often applied to popular and national music by Johann Gottfried Herder and the  movement for German Romantics over half a century earlier.

Eyeplug focus on mainly Brit-centric Folk, but will include native tradtional music from around the globe thats has roots in the folk traditions with an open mind on progressive forms too!
