I LOVE Burl Ives! I, too, am an "old school" folkie: Seeger, Guthrie, Clarence Ashley, Eck Roberts, Fiddlin' John Carson, Carter Family etc. I don;t have too much use for "modern" or "contemporary" folk... a folkie is a folkie is a folkie. You write songs what get passed down and adapted and changed and loved and appreciated? You a folkie. You write for the sake of making hit record? I don't care if you sing 16th century Welsh funeral laments; if you doing it for any other reason than "BECAUSE", then you ain;t no folkie nohow.

Teaho! (Peace on you)
