RiGGy Beatles and Folk music (103* d) RE: Beatles and Folk music 25 Feb 05

I would have never discovered the love of my life, ENGLISH FOLKSONG, if it had not been for the Beatles. The American fascination with their accents, cultural differences, and sophistication became open Anglophilia for many I hung with in the Village in the 60s. The timing of their entre' to the American Music scene coincided with puberty for me and I wanted girls to scream for me, too.
Their [ and The Stones, too ] obvious respect for, and borrowing from AMERICAN ROOTS MUSIC, sent me on my particular search for musical roots, an obsession that draws me to lurk MudCat everyday. When the Incredible String Band came on the scene, they joined the Beatles to create my lust for the roots of English music. It was a short pleasant walk from there to the Topic Catalog and the rest of my life. Thank you Fab4. Riggy
