Thread Name: What got you hooked on folk music?
Subject: RE: What got you hooked on folk music?
Like Don, hearing songs when young such as the Ash Grove and Linden Lea, then discovering Steeleye Span and Fairport Convention in my late teens, then I really was hooked.
It's whatever turns you on I suppose - some like the raw gutsiness of soul, I like the purity of folk and the themes behind the songs which are often timeless and universal.
