Nora What got you started? (73* d) RE: What got you started? 15 May 98

Grew up listening to my parents' Janis Joplin, Joan Baez, Beatles, Jefferson Airplane, etc. Rebelled by studying classical music. A friend gave me a Sandy Denny record and some Pentangle records in about 1980 or so. Got hold of some Fairport Convention, Richard Thompson, etc. and was lost from then on. Or found, I guess, depending on how you look at it. I started listening to midwestern singer-songwriters and folk musicians, and then got involved with community radio, producing acoustic folk and, yes, womyn's music shows.

My current project is learning to sing; I have always believed my family members who told me I was a lousy singer. I'm finding they were wrong. I live in North Carolina now and am finding Piedmont style blues and old time string band music much to my liking.
