GUEST,ST Young Folkies - Where are you? (48) RE: Young Folkies - Where are you? 19 Dec 16

"I speak only of what I know - but there are dozens of young people playing folk music and dancing and singing wherever I go - festivals all over, and Sheffield area (From: GUEST,Dave Sheffield Date: 15 Dec 16 - 05:36 AM )"

As an update: I counted 12 "young singers" at the regular, local, unaccompanied singaround last night. That number is just of those who lead songs and doesn't include their friends who joined in with choruses etc, nor does it include the Jess & Richard Arrowsmith/James Fagan generation and their friends who, for the purposes of this thread, some may consider no longer "young" singers. Us OAPs were outnumbered but the fact that singers ranged from late teens to at least late 60s makes it an even healthier time than the early revival of the 1960s etc when there was seldom such a mix of generations present. (Plus it was a great session: all the singing was excellent.)

Perhaps the folk legacy is secure after all.
