Thread Name: What got you hooked on folk music?
Subject: RE: What got you hooked on folk music?
Mum sang all the time at home, Dad was a great player of LPs: Morris On, Lark Rise to Candleford, Mysteries (!), Watersons, Blue Murder etc. and a great photographer of Castleton Garland, Haxey Hood, Abbotts Bromley Horn Dance, Bacup Brittania Nutters, Scarborough Skipping, Whitby Penny Hedge, Ashbourne Football, Hare Pie Scrambles and loads of other fantastic stuff... I carried the camera bag, tripod or sound recording equipment.
Kiveton Park Folk Club (at the Lord Conyers back then), Lord Conyers Morris Men, Yorkshire Chanderlier, Father Ken, Handsworth Sword Dancers, Whitby Folk Week ........
I've been so fortunate when I think back to experience all these things....
