Thread Name: First Songs You Performed
Subject: First Songs You Performed
I'm sure that all of us can remember the anxiety that came from the first few times we got up on stage and performed in front of an audience. Iwas thinking about that the other day, and was remembering some of the songs I first performed. Not suprisingly, almost every one was from the Anthology Of American Folk Music. They were good songs then, and had been for a long time before they were recorded. And they still seem like good songs to me, and I still sing them every once in awhile. These are some of the songs I sang when I first started out:
   Henry Lee
   Old Shoes and Leggins
   John Johanna
   Bandit Cole Younger
   Penny's Farm

Remember yours?
