Thread Name: What Brought You to Trad?
Subject: RE: What Brought You to Trad?
Both sides of the family being fond of the music of the North East of England as performed by Owen Brannagin and Kathleen Ferrier.
Developing a (sic) unhealthy interest in skiffle at around the age of ten and listening to Lonnie Donegan, Johnny Duncan etc and then a few years later hearing Ramblin Jack Elliott on Radio Luxembourg.
Becomming passionately interested in the blues and the early work of Bob Dylan around 1964.
Being told by those who were activly interested in folk music to listen to the traditional music of this country and to get myself to Birtley Folk Club.
The rest is history.
