Following on from the various threads such as young talent is killing folk clubs etc. I was concerned as to why me, and others of my generation are still alive. They say 'old golfers never die, they just lose their balls'
Perhaps, just to pass the time, you Mudcatters can find reasons for the longevity of Folkers
No prizes for the winner

I reckon that it's the consumption of numerous pints of beer that accompany folk sessions - there must be something in the ale that leads to a longer life!

They just refrain more often in their per-verse lives 'til someone has to finally have to make the "trad. arrangement by" which they can become a true underground phenomena and one with legend itself.

I remember a friend remarking after having seen Mother Maybelle Carter in her last years that she'd died two years ago and either nobody told her or she hadn't noticed.

Sorry, but the truth of the matter is that old folkies do eventually die.

It's the only way to get them to shut the folk up.

Old Folkies DO die, you just can't tell the difference?

Old Folkies never die because they are pickled in alcohol.
