Molly Malone Newbies vs Old-timers (93* d) RE: Newbies vs Old-timers 16 Mar 00


I would be nice if we knew, on average, how many new "Catters" we get every week. I still consider myself a "newbie" to this site, though I'm no newbie to music or internet forums, and I'll admit to posting the same-ol' ame-ol'. I do this for two reasons: 1) It gives the newer folks an opportunity to speak their piece, and 2) It gives the not-so-newbies an opportunity to place their blue-clicky's worth so that information doesn't remain buried. That's why I'm here. I never, ever want this information to die. I want my great-great grand children to have access to the knowledge I have and more importantly, all of you have.

There are some incredible minds here...and unfortunately I'm not bloody likely to go to Australia or Ireland to meet you any time soon. You may have said it a thousand times over, but I want to know that my generations to come will know what folk music is.
