TNDARLN Where are the new folk 'cats from? (149* d) RE: Where are the new folk 'cats from? 01 Mar 02


Hidy, Y'all,
[I'm kinda new here] Chattanooga's been home for awhile, but Alabama roots do run deep. The name-to cross thread a bit-came from Mick Moloney himself: there were seven of us on one of his tours whom he pegged the Tennessee "Dehrlins" [trust me, it sounds different with an Irish accent]- and I've used it ever' since.
Piano, autoharp, bodhran. Did somebody say "shapenote"? Sacred Harp and Gospel. Old time in general. Music teacher by trade/calling- this forum is an incredible source of background info, lyrics, etc.
A recent thread on "The Night/Dixie Down" reminded me how important that song was to me-- here I was being taught to sing in "head voice", but how I loved singing along with Baez in her range! Still do.
I'm enjoying this thread. Nice to meet y'all.
