GUEST,eldergirl Old folkies in retirement—what next? (27) RE: Old folkies in retirement—what next? 25 Jun 13

It's not that we've retired from being folkies; we've retired from the daily grind, and thus have more time to return to our original folky state. Someone I was talking with a few weeks back had a theory that once we hit 50 or thereabouts, we have a stronger inclination to take up our national heritage(oops, there's a big word) than when we were younger. I kind of see what he means. And most of us aren't in it for the money. I mean, What money?? There are so many fine, moving, tragic, hilarious, beautiful songs out there which are scarcely ever heard, so let's carry on rescuing them, singing and playing Real Good, For Free if necessary. And it usually is.
