So I'm young, 20, and have found NO ONE who listens to this stuff. I got hooked on this old stuff, used to just be the Blues, now it's everything: country, folk, cajun, jazz, etc. Listening, trying to play and interpret as best as I can. But I've it's not just an age thing. Everyone either thinks they're just old scratchy records or some of the best stuff on this earth. I just don't know where to look for people who like this stuff. And I'm afraid that when I do they'll just be all snobby snooty and hipster.

You won't find any "snobby snooty and hipster" types here, Guest. :) There are great people though- knowledgeable, personable and friendly and they just about all love music.

Why not become a Mudcat member? Makes communication so much easier- and it is free.

Where do you live?

Chances are there's somebody with similar interests near you.

You can always come here; this is a second home to many of us "Dinosaurs".

Pick a name and become a member of the family. We do not tolerate name calling or any other abuse. Outside of that, we are as loose as ashes.

Google for folk music or old-time music or acoustic music around your home town.

Or just hang out here. Or come to the Getaway in MD this fall.

Hi, Guest. Name some tracks/cuts. Name some names. That'd be faster than waltzing around the topic. I like some country, some western, some reggae, some mento, some blues, some cajun, some bluegrass, some jazz, some folk, some songwriter stuff, some hymns some--well, you get the idea. As Jack said, where are you? I can recall being 20 just 44 years ago. OK, so maybe recall is the wrong word, but I was 20 once, that I know.

Also, what instrument(s) do you play? Do you sing? Are you trained? (I wasn't trained by the age of 20. Hell, I'm barely housebroke now.) Tell us about yourself.

And the first person to respond to you is one of the nicest people who posts here. Sharp mind she has.

Go to the next Bluegrass festival that you hear about.

Strictly, Bluegrass is a very narrowley-defined art form, but from a practical standpoint, the people who appreciate it are generally fans of all kinds of acoustic music. Festivals often offer music that is far from strict Bluegrass.

Old Country, Folk and early Jazz were all done with acoustic instruments.

A parking lot picking session may garner you a few friends.

Let's see I got the Bristol Sessions recently put out by Bear Records. Love the Johnson Brothers - Message from Carolina, I long to see my mother (ten thousand miles away) is amazing: "Near the banks of a lonely river, ten thousand miles away," have you heard anything more beautiful? Reason being I didn't go into detail is because, honestly, I'm not in to too many artists except for blues singers, Patton, Skip James, Sleepy John Estes, so on. But I know of a bunch of different, great songs from a bunch of artists whose name I can't always name. And that's because I listen to a lot of compilations put out by wonderful companies, dust to digital, yazoo, bear, document, etc if those ring any bells. I like the song "Police and High Sheriff come ridin down" by Ollis Martin (his only side). Basically, I got started on, of course, the Harry Smith Anthology and have basically just continued to listen to similar music. As for location I'm from West Virginia. Right now I'm on a ship in the Navy and will return to Newport News, VA. Before I left I wasn't into it like I am now, so I didn't seek too many people out in WVa.

Why, thank'ee, 9 (The Andy Griffith syndrome. :)

I remember WWVA in Wheeling very well. Does it still present a wide variety of music?

Being onboard ship you may not be able to join as a member for awhile. Is that right?

Welcome aboard the Mudcat raft!

Some kind of handle other than "guest" would be useful.

Cheerily,

Welcome to the Catbox!

Plenty of knowledgeable folks around here. Quite a few are sometimes snobby, some are sometimes snooty, and several are hipsters (is that a bad thing?)

Combined musical experience on this forum must be in the thousands of years. Feel free to ask questions, share your discoveries, and poke around in archived threads. Have fun!

If s/he's on board ship s/he may not be able to get cookies right now.


Guest, I had a son in that Navy (out now awhile). Come home safe. The older welcome-to-Mudcat 1-liner used to be, "Yer among yer own kind, now."

This site runs on software and architecture that predates "current" BB design because in its yoot, it pioneered online forum-type-places. Click around when you have plenty of time to get addicted, and you will find a lot of neat stuff stashed here, especially in the FAQ which has links to a lot of cool sh*t, and in the DT mentioned in the blue search box up top of the page.


Welcome,

~Susan

Well, I'm not looking forward to being 20 either.

Actually, I know what you mean about this youth thing, it can be a real problem. Our local folk club once got a feature about itself into the local newspaper. The next week the place was packed out with students from the nearby college. None of them ever came back, they just took one look and that was it. It wasn't that the quality was too awful, they just couldn't get their heads round the concept of homespun music I guess.

Well, there are probably some people your age who like the same stuff - and have the same problem finding each other. No guarantee that we`ll know them but some might join old geezers like us here now and again.

There`s even young musicians making a living with old timey stuff. Have you heard of the Carolina Choclate Drops for instance?

Welcome!
Just a side not about the handle: moderators' policy here is to delete most posts by "guest." But many of us are cookieless for one reason or another, and just post consistently as "GUEST, Navy" or something like that. The mods generally respect this, as you are consistently identifying yourself. But if you can get a membership you will have access to all the cool stuff Susan mentioned.
Cheers
