RoyH (Burl) Being an old folksinger - don't like it (98* d) RE: Being an old folksinger - don't like it 12 Nov 12

After reading and thoroughly enjoying this thread I feel I must add my twopennorth. I am an old folksinger, and I DO like it, singing that is. I do have a few pains in places where I didn't have places before but I'll be 80 years old next June, and am mighty glad that I can still sing and tell a few yarns. I started as a professional singer in 1964, so I'm in my 48th year as a pro. Those years have given me so much pleasure and introduced me to so many great people that I don't want to stop. I thought I'd stop a few years ago when I had some health problems, but 'retirement didn't work' and I carried on singing, and was glad I did despite a few more problems thereafter. What I am now doing is trying to work up some 'Roy at 80' gigs next year. My birthday is 15th June, and I'll be looking for gigs from the 16th June to 16 December. Some clubs are already on board, and I'd welcome enquiries from any others, festivals too. I am of the old school regarding age, and regarding style and attitude,I sing unaccompanied, and endeavour to entertain and involve my audience throughout a performance, a very 'old school' approach. I had a really good 'Roy at 70' tour ten years ago, and I'm older and better now. Anyone interested please pm me here or email I look forward to hearing from you. Cheers,ROY
