Well, I am just knocked out by who I get to play with here in the world's biggest Folk toybox. Margaret, I am so pleased that you have decided to join us. Like Sandy and Caroline, you are extremely well thought of in these parts and it is just an honor and a joy to welcome you to our village. I think you will find that we are an eclectic bunch who love to talk music and the events that spawned it. It gets a little excitin' from time to time when we take off on something controversial, but the hallmark here is to disagree without being disagreeable. And of course we have our downright silly threads. If you want to get a flavor for how much we care for one another, do a forum search on Catspaw or DougR. If you want to see our zany side, check out Mudcat Tavern, 1-7. And of course there is our music which is all over this site.

If you would allow me to, I will give you a quick how-to on two tools. One is the Digital Tradition Folk Database. It is that blue box in the top right corner of every thread. Using this you can search the database for any song you are looking for. Many have midi's attached. The second tool can be found at the top as well. It says "Quick Links". Drop down that menu and go to Search the Forum. If you are looking for a song that doesn't appear in the Digitrad, it may well be in the Forums, posted by someone for our enjoyment.

I am so happy you have joined us. Please contribute and help Sandy, Caroline, Art Thieme, Frank Hamilton, Rick and all of us "pass it on".

All the very best,
