Thread Name: First Folk Song You Sang in Public
Subject: RE: First Folk Song You Sang in Public
I did sing with a group singing Clancy Brothers songs when I was Thirteen in 1960 but would class this as my true introduction to folk song

A) Black Leg Miners

B) From the singing of Don Day (from Hebburn, Co. Durham)

C) The Fort Folk Club, South Shields

D) It was in 1963

E) I'm now 63

F) It is when I do a show about the Miners' Union

and it introduced me to a lifelong love for the music
