Thread Name: What got you hooked on folk music?
Subject: RE: What got you hooked on folk music?
Hearing The Weavers' "Goodnight Irene" on the radio when I was a wee tyke, then making the connection between that and The Kingston Trio later on (and there is a connection), hearing Bob Gibson and then hearing echoes of Guthrie, Seeger, and Gibson all over the Great Scare. Chad Mitchell Trio hooked me good & proper. Dropped out of it during 70s, back into it mid-70s with Bill Staines, Prine & Goodman, etc.
