GUEST,angel Are all folkies over fifty? (139* d) RE: Are all folkies over fifty? 19 Apr 03


Here in the Shetlands there is an incredible amount of musical talent among youngsters which is nurtured in a very supportive environment. Alot of young people get the training, and may well leave it for many years, or play different styles, but once the seed has been planted, they often come back to it in later years. I'm only 24, and I came back a few years ago. It isn't the same culture here as I found in folk clubs and the like in London, older people learn and play with older people to a much greater extent because the stronger community (and often family) ties seem to make the whole thing alot more integrated.
