Folk music wasn't just something that happened in the 1960s. The sound and the scene continued to thrive throughout the 1980s and 1990s, mostly because of the efforts of Fast Folk, a group of singers and songwriters who came together in 1982 in New York City to mutually support and promote their own work.
