Thread Name: Higher percentage musicians 1900 v 2000
Subject: RE: Higher percentage musicians 1900 v 2000
My family confirms this trend, alas.
My 4 grandparents. All musicians.
2 parents, both regular players.
My generation. Me and two brothers, all three know how to play things, I m the only one who does.
Next generation, 6 kids (two from each brother). One can just about play "three blind mice", rest nothing.
What we need is a new Lonnie Donegan to fire up a generation.
