    In the post-punk era, the English folk-rock hybrid has emerged as a world music style that appeals to music fans who have diverse tastes and for whom issues of authenticity and tradition are not key factors. Drawing on performers' own accounts, Burns examines commercial and political aspects of the changing folk music industry and provides musicological analysis which uncovers the adaptation processes employed in folk-rock performance.
