Yes...

Filk and folk music both use that phrase and emblem.

I actually wrote an article, "Dandelion Music," about the symbolism and magic of that plant. It's been reprinted online:

Interesting. Kathy Mar has been calling Filk music the Dandelion Conspiracy for as long as I've known her. I wonder if she read your article?

Thank you!

My gardening hat says "North American Dandelion Preservation Society" on it. This place sent some review copies a while back, and I was just thrilled.

Re: Yes...

I don't know. I didn't start the trend, just helped push it along a bit. I saw a "Dandelion Music" album years ago and gosh, now there are a bunch of them.
