Folk music is based in many forms of "traditional" music, from dance music (the source of most folk tunes) through love songs,songs of rebellion, broadside ballads,spirituals, early country music and bluegrass, and the storytelling tradition. In the 1960s, there was a revival of folk music and it entered the pop music world, with a move to more acoustic and "rootsy" music, and was considered the pop alternative to Rock.
