Folksie Lady How ethnically diverse are we? (186* d) RE: How ethnically diverse are we? 17 Jun 99

Fascinating thread, as those on Mudcat are wont to be!

I'm an American of Danish and Austrian descent; both sides of the family have not been here more than a few generations. I'm married to a man who is ethnically Taiwanese but is a citizen of Fiji. Sad to say, we don't have kids, but they would join the stew/pot/mosaic (my own favorite word for this ethnic mix) and find their own identities if we did.

I do love Scandinavian folk music but that interest has come about during more recent years. My first love in folk was, and always will be, American folk music. Both the kind imported through the Anglo-Saxon-Celtic tradition and the home-grown variety. The latter is probably my favorite type of all.

Kat, as you know I'm mighty interested in women's issues and songs about them. Y'know, I've tried to do a forum search on words like "feminism" and "women's songs" but it always times out after 60 seconds and I can't get anywhere. :( Can anyone offer some suggestions?

Oh, I'm a blues lover too.
