Thread Name: First Folk Song You Sang in Public
Subject: RE: First Folk Song You Sang in Public
Mind you, the first folk song, though not consciously as a folk song or in a folk context, was "The Minstrel Boy", sung in a music lesson at a private school in Folkestone, at the age of 8 or 9, a capella because I could not tell the music teacher what key it was in. I learned it from the "Daily Express" Community Song Book and my mother's piano playing.
