Thread Name: What got you hooked on folk music?
Subject: RE: What got you hooked on folk music?
Lonnie Donegan, Rock Island Line and Grand Coulee Dam led me to Lead and Woody and Pete Seeger. From Pete I learned the important lesson that anyone can sing. Sort of found my way to English song by a very circuitous route.
Sang in clubs for about 25 years until one of my lungs gave up on me, otherwise I would probably still be doing it.
Now spend my time thinking of parodies for Song Challenges.
