Ask most Memphians to define folk music, and they'll immediately conjure up images of rural white Americana, the flipside to Mississippi Delta blues. Appalachian fiddlers, hokum guitar pickers, and longhaired, dulcet-toned groups singing about war: That's the folk-music stereotype.

A more realistic picture will come into sharper focus this week when the International Folk Alliance Conference rolls into town.

Read the rest of Andria Lisle's preview of this week's Folk Alliance Conference.
