Nevada Folk Music Dying? (97* d) RE: Folk Music Dying? 11 Jun 03


Sad but true.
I have just left school & almost finished my exams, & although i have to admit i'm a crazed Eminem fan, (yes, i do know all the words to "Lose Yourself"), i still know where my roots are. I go to 10 or 11 festivals a year & to clubs at least once a fortnight. Unfortunatly, this is not due to my school music teacher, who having found out i like folk music, continually asks when i'm going to perform my Irish dancing?!! One of my teachers is into Bob Dylan, but does not go to clubs or festivals.
It does appear that we are losing our tradition, but all we can do is keep playing & hope.
Keep it Live!
Luv AAA x
