Thread Name: Mudcat's Future
Subject: RE: Mudcat's Future
I came to the Mudcat because Art Thieme told me that I'd find people who loved the music like I do here at the Cat. He was right. One of the best features about this forum is that people do wander in and out, getting from the threads what they need and contributing what they can. Perhaps someday there will need to be various thread forums for different topics. That won't diminsh the impact of the Cat. The impact doesn't lie with the format it lies with the people who have been attracted to this site and whose passion, devotion and interest for and in folk music keep the Cat so vital. I read with enthusiasm messages from Sandy or Art or Big Mick or Joe or Allison or Harpgirl knowing that with every thread(well almost every) I learn something about the music and the people who love it. For the last fifteen years or so most of my work has been as a storyteller but I love the music and I have to say that most of the time after I finish reading Mudcat's threads I pick up my banjo or guitar and play. If it does nothing more for me than that it has done more than enough. Love you all, Dan
