Subject: RE: What counts as young?
I'm an over-the hill and quite decrepit 41 year old.

I'm guessing Eliza you're considered one of the old guard simply because you've a body of work behind you, despite your tender years. Anyway, folkies are like a good cheese or fine wine, they mature well and gather a depth and complexity that can only come with age an experience. I'm counting on it.

Old age isn't what it used to be. My dad is 70 this year, and he still enjoys and ale or three yet I can remember when his Mum and Dad were their age and seemed so . . . aged in attitude, whereas the old pot and pan is still very active and not at all old in outlook.
