thespionage Forming a Folk Group at College (Univer (16) RE: Forming a Folk Group at College (Univer 20 Jan 05


Charley, I have been thinking about the bulletin boards as being the right way to go. I do play guitar and now 5-string banjo and a few chords on mandolin (although I don't own a mandolin). I do have an iPod with some of the greatest folk music I have ever heard (in addition to many other excellent genres). I hadn't thought of just walking around *playing* the stuff for people, but it sounds kind of cool. Thanks for your advice!

Mary (beetle cat): It is quite comforting to know that another university (college)-age folk enthusiast exists! Here in the states most people think of folk music as really sappy, not necessarily "cracked." A friend of mine who is, in fact, into Arlo Guthrie and the '60s folk music hadn't realized that Woody Guthrie's songs had such a political edge. He thought that "This Land Is Your Land" was just some stupid patriotic song until I played him the verse about the sign that said private property.

Thank you for your responses thus far!
