Subject: RE: Where Have all the Folkies Gone
I think its time to get the music back on the street like we see in the Irish festivals....Its about connecting with the public again, that's what folk and jazz should be about....getting people dancing, singing and listening live.
Dave Hum the banjo player spent most of his life performing on the street, another was Jim Mckillop the fiddler.
I stumbled on this group from "N'Orlins" who push street performance although they seem to have a large following.
