Thank you for your question. To learn some basic information about a specific genre of music, I would suggest checking out the encyclopedias that the library provides access to, such as Oxford Music Online. A search for "folk" brings up several results relating to this many-faceted genre of music. As you learn more about folk music, you can use Oxford Music Online to further refine your subject of interest. If you are conducting academic research on music, our Music Research Guide should help you on your way.
