Thread Name: What got you hooked on folk music?
Subject: RE: What got you hooked on folk music?
I'd just got the hang of three chords on the guitar at a time when pop music got really weird and phsychadelic, and I couldn't play any of it. So I was looking around for something I could play with my three chords, and discovered "The Burl Ives Book of Australian Folk Songs" inmy local music shop. That led me to the Spinners' TV show, Radio 2's Folk on Friday, and eventually (when I was old enough to go to pubs) the local folk club run by Geoff and Pennie Harris.
