The popularity of music styles all come in waves, so the definition of mainstream will always be evolving to present what's most popular in a current generation, often tied to new techniques and equipment available. After awhile, some styles make a major comeback, like the bluegrass revival already mentioned, the celtic music of the 90's, and so on. But yes, as someone already mentioned, it's heavily dependent on demographics. Where someone lives will definitely have a different view of what's more popular.
