Thread Name: What got you hooked on folk music?
Subject: RE: What got you hooked on folk music?
My family all played and sang and my 'aunt' who used to look after me in holiday and weekends and who was great friend of my sisters was a singer. It was normal for people to come to the house or the local pub to sing and play and I just learned by osmosis. What made me even more determined that I was going to continue was when I went to Grammar school and my music teacher told me that playing concertina's and whistles was not playing an instrument and singing with the family was not singing.
