GUEST,'Ray Bucknell What got you hooked on folk music? (130* d) RE: What got you hooked on folk music? 27 May 07


The first song I went nuts about was Tennessee Ernie Ford's "Sixteen Tons."   I couldn't have been older than three, but I recall being mesmerized by the finger snapping and that great vocal.   Several years later, I saw the Chad Mitchell Trio on television for the first time.   That did it; there was no turning back.   I'm proud to say that two summers ago I took my then-12-year-old son to meet the Chad Mitchell Trio at one of their rare reunion gigs.   Will the folk addiction be passed to the next generation?   He's 14 now and the jury's still out, but I am still and shall remain hooked.
