Is singer/songwriter a genre?

August 25, 2005

I’m thinking that this blog will be a place to contemplate different aspects of the singer/songwriter as a genre (is it a genre?), the song as an art form, its place in popular music, and why we’re drawn to this musical form. As to that earlier theoretically rhetorical question “Is it a genre”? … I’d love to collect some definitions of the singer/songwriter as a genre (or the “performing songwriter” as some are saying nowadays).
