Thread Name: What other people think - Best Folk Song
Subject: RE: What other people think - Best Folk Song
Dang, Tim, you pose a hard question. I know and sing almost all of those songs....and I think of myself as an inadequate folksinger because of them. I've worked with the Rise Up Singing folks for 23 years now, and the songs I sing are the 2400 songs in their songbooks - almost all of the songs on your list, are in those songbooks. And I'm told at Mudcat that's bad, but yet I love the songs and sing them quite well.
So, what the hell? I sing the songs and all is well, and we have a good time. Isn't having a good time what it's all about?
