Where's the Folk? Certainly not Performing at the Newport "Folk" Festival

In 1972 Sara Peller asked "where's the beef"?

In 2015 Acoustic Pop is Not Folk asks "where's the folk"?

Click on the videos of the "folk" artists booked by the Newport "Folk" Festival, we think you, too, will be asking "where's the folk".

The Bluegrass Situation reports "Newport Folk Festival has announced the first round of artists for their 2015 lineup.
So far, the lineup includes The Lone Bellow, Calexico, Heartless Bastards, Bahamas, Leon Bridges, Haunt the House, Brandi Carlile, Sturgill Simpson, Courtney Barnett, Langhorne Slim & the Law, Traveller – Cory Chisel, Jonny Fritz & Robert Ellis, Nikki Lane, Madisen Ward & Mama Bear, The Suffers, First Aid Kit, Laura Marling, Shakey Graves, J Mascis, Blake Mills, Field Report, and The Jones Family Singers..."
It appears the Newport "Folk" Festival has turned into Bonnaroo North.
We're waiting for folk artists be announced.
