Subject: RE: Still wondering what's folk these days?
Wasn't goint to bother with this, much of which seems about as far from folk so songs as you can get, but I'm in the process of digitising some of my old vinyl albums, (now up to the U.S. ones) and cant help wondering 'Where have all the flowers gone?'
Having just done Dillard Chandler, Roscoe Holcomb, Nimrod Workman and Frank Proffitt, I'm in the middle of the 2 Beech Mountain Folk Legacy selections.
Does anybody sing as good songs as that as well as that anymore.
Not in my hearing, and isn't the folk world a much impoverished place for it.
Talk about 'the best of times and the worst of times!!'
