I know that Georgia Lucas, the daughter of Sandy Denny & Trevor Lucas is grown and has two twin daughters. I believe she lives in Australia. I have always been curious if Georgia ever was a singer?
With such tremendously talented musician parents, I sometimes wonder if she inhereted their talent/interest for singing/writing songs and playing guitar? I suppose that she may have not been interested in music & got into other interests entirely. Being born with such great genes from musician parent's, I do wonder why type of singing voice she has and or ability for music.

Sometimes genes skip a generation. Our daughter never sang or progressed beyond basic in the music department, and she always hated my Geordie pipes. But her two little girls are full of music. The 5 year old sings, dances and will have a go at any instrument she can get her hands on.
She's going to inherit my pipes!

To Little Robin:

You are right! I have some friends (a married couple) with one daughter and they both were not athletic at all. They did not even watch sports on TV or ever attend sporting type events.
They didn't discourage sports but didn't push it on their daughter either.

Somehow their daughter just took an interest on her own and did very well in gymnastics and other sports. Sometimes you will find athletic kids have parents who are really into sports or at least one of them but in this case both parents were not sports type people. So I do know what you mean. Glad to hear your granddaugher has taken the interest in the pipes!!

I don't think things such as musical ability are inherited through genes. I think musical interest/tendencies comes more from exposure; whether it be from parents, grandparents, friends, school, etc. However, things such as voice can be inherited, so it's completely possible that Georgia has her mother's voice but not her incredible pitch and rhythm. These things can be learnt although they will probably be more limited the longer they are left.

I thought the same thing about exposure.
So our daughter was taken to several folk festivals and concerts in her first year. Our friends always commented on how good she was, the perfect little festival goer.
By the time she was 10 she had been to about 10 Auckland Folk Festivals and Wellington Folk Festivals and several Hamilton ones too. She had been to the UK with us, joined in the Padstow Mayday festivities, Helston Furry Day, spent time at folk clubs and festivals there, even met Martin Carthy a few times and the Furies in person after their concert at Redcar FF.
She had piano/keyboard lessons for about a year and when she had a chance to learn an instrument at school she chose........
But she didn't attend half the classes and dropped out at the end of her first year.
I bought her a guitar (but I think one of her boyfriends destroyed it) and she's always had access to any of our instruments but showed little interest. She has my Oscar Schmit autoharp at the moment but I don't think it comes out of the case.
She's also into heavy metal music!
But her 5 year old is into anything musical. She especially loves Susan Boyle and will sing along with the CD in my car. Her little guitar is in an open tuning at the moment because her fingers are a bit too small and soft to cope with chords just yet (she only turned 5 a week ago) but that will come.
And when we take her to the session at our local, when the diddley music starts she's up and dancing.
This is the kid I should have had 20 years ago!
