I'm a bit late responding to this whole thing, but it's better late than never, right?
I know so many people my age who would love this place--they love folk music at least as much as I do. I have a friend who just got bagpipes (and he also sings) and another friend who just joined a local singing ensemble called the Happy Daggers (see their page here: http://www.geocities.com/SunsetStrip/Arena/8032/). We're all under 18.
Wow--maybe I'll start spreading the word about this place. It took me forever to find it, and my friends would love it here, too. . .
