Jaxon What got you started? (73* d) RE: What got you started? 21 Oct 98


I grew up thinking I couldn't sing but still loving music. Lyrics were always important to me. I grew up without ever singing outside of the shower and without ever touching a musical instrument.
At age 42 I was at a Folk Mass in my parish and sat next to a woman and daughter who both sang beautifully. After Mass I told them how much I enjoyed their voices and the mother said thet she had enjoyed my voice too! For whatever reason I believed her and approached the folk group in our parish. Within a month I had bought a guitar and started taking lessons. I was also singing with them at rehearsals and finally was invited to join them at Mass.
I began to learn many Irish songs I had heard as a child as well as many folk songs I learned in the 60s. I now play out solo and with friends. Music has become an integral part of my life because of one kind comment from an unknown lady.
