Folk Music and You
How did you find folk music? I bet my introduction to this music about 10 years ago is different from most folkies—but I could be wrong. It seems to me a large amount of folk music fans grew up in a folk music family where jam sessions were regular occurrences on the weekends with the uncles, cousins, grandkids, and friends. Or perhaps you found it in college—during the heyday of the folk revival in the 60s. Or maybe your story is like mine—I didn’t even know folk music existed until one person played me one band—that’s all it took to turn a heavy metal teenage rocker into a folkie. So………what’s your story?
