Thread Name: Who influenced you to become a musician
Subject: RE: Who influenced you to become a musician
When I was a kid in summer camp in 1960 I heard Gerry Tenney, a counselor, fingerpicking "Railroad Bill" and it was the most beautiful sound I'd ever heard. That was it for me. A year later my parents bought me a guitar. By 1962 I was fingerpicking "Railroad Bill." I've never stopped playing.
I just Googled Gerry Tenney and I see he's still at it, with California Klezmer.
