Deckman New Ancient Ballads? (73* d) RE: New Ancient Ballads? 12 Mar 18

Being 80 (180?) now, I find myself remembering what were my first exposures to this folk music that has driven me all my life. I can clearly trace the people, the songs, the searches from when I was about thirteen onward. But recently, I remembered what might have been my very first exposure. It was when I was in grade school. I was maybe nine or ten years old. The teachers ordered us all onto busses and spread us out on a gym floor in some other school. Then nto a stage walked a man named Bruce. He played a banjo and sang songs to us. I was enthralled.

After all these years, that clear memory is returning. So, never doubt what impact you might have on youngsters when you make the effort to teach and expose them to these treasures and our heritages. bob(deckman)nelson
