Thread Name: First Folk Song You Sang in Public
Subject: RE: First Folk Song You Sang in Public
A. Either The Gardener or The Bold Fisherman (did them both but can't remember in which order)
B From a my parents' Tim Hart & Maddy Prior album (Folksongs of Old England 2)
C. As part of a 'folk music' week at the Othona Community in Dorset.
D 1995
E 19
F 34
G Yes, but not all that regularly as I have always had my father accompany me on guitar for both those songs. Maybe about time I rearranged them so I can accompany myself or just sing them a capella occasionally.

Sang folk songs for many years prior to that, but only in general musical gatherings... that was the first time with a specifically folk oriented audience.
