Jack mostly folk young folkies? (115* d) RE: young folkies? 18 Dec 97


Admission of age and stupidity, My stupidity was to think Kingston Trio and Limeliters were the inventors of Folk, They certainly put it in the top forty charts and I'm forever grateful for their introduction to folk music. I am truly a folkie and not a spring chicken but Alan might have a few springs on me, as a youngster about eight or ten I recall Irene as a pop tune done by The Weavers.Now I can say the music makes me feel young. "Was'nt That A Time"? Today's folkies might want to lend an ear to some old folkies like "U"Utah Phillips, Rosalie Sorrels,Ramblin Jack Elliott, Spider John Koerner, Taj Mahal, Peggy, Mike and Pete Seeger. They are old folkies still doing the concert tours." Utah" on rare occassion. These folks are still performing as folk artist. I attend a lot of concerts and have noticed the new interest in folkie music.There are new and young artist on the rise and thank goodness for those who will keep the traditions alive. yours in music........Jack mostly folk....
