mikesamwild First Folk Song You Sang in Public (74* d) RE: First Folk Song You Sang in Public 22 Jan 11


paddy McGinty's Goat and Kelly the Boy from Killane, learned from my dad. Sung at Harry Boardman's club in 1956 in Brazenose St.

Mind you, elsewhere I was plonking an old nylon strung guitar with a ragbag of popular skiffle and Burl Ives songs and Woody Guthrie numbers and blues etc etc , very eclectic for the fellow teens. Just mopping it all up and totally unselfconscious or self aware or critical. By early 1960 I was at our new University Folk Club in Sheffield singing 'serious' unaccompanied folk
