I hope not. There's a chance it won't be as famous because of mainstream music. Over the years, folk music's popularity will depend on social media and the people who focus on that niche.

I don't think folk music will fade. It reached its peak in the 60's when someone gave a 50's beatnik a guitar, but even then it wasn't mainstream. It was just a new form of music that drew an audience. It will always be that, really.
I also think that folk music will not fade. Even now I can see that it is popular among my children's friends to play bass guitar, piano and even violin. I heard that playing and listening to classical music helps developing brain (sharing an interesting source ), so I think it will stay with us no matter what. I am glad that my son recently has started playing the bass guitar (recommend this one). We are more than satisfied with the sound. Now we have even more atmospheric evenings among family.

The folk music that peaked in the 60's was then as now a continuation from folk music that came from immigration from the old countries. Country music and blues music as well. So it should be kept preserved as important culture for our society. I liked the folk music that came out of Woodie Guthrie era that influenced the 60's artists. Some of which I found to be pretty corny. But Bob Dylan, Joan Baes shifted that clean cut image more back towards the activism of Woodie Guthrie. There was a British folk scene that tapped into their musical minstrels from way back. The artist Richard Thompson came out of that scene in the group Fairport Convention. He's gone on to produce some beautifully poignant music like 1952 Vincent Black Lightning.
