Eric the Viking Where are the youngsters? (154* d) RE: Where are the youngsters? 25 Aug 12


Up in Scotland, at least the area I live in and certainly on Orkney there are loads of talented young musicians playing folk/traditional music. At the local folk club we get young people from age 16 upwards, they sit and play/sing with us old and middle aged folkies.Some sing traddional Scottish/Folk others blues/slide guitar/banjo, mandolin etc. Some write great songs. Some cover songs from Neil young to John Martyn. Orkney has a huge number of young players and singers who spend Saturdays at the Orkney tradditional music project in Kirkwall. The Wrigley sisters teach several instruments. Douglas Montgomery runs a band of extremely talented young players called Hadhirgaan from Kirkwall Grammar school.At least in Scotland, folk/tradditional music seems to be alive as much as heavy rock and every other genre.

By the way Selby's lads are really great musicians...Hi Keith !!
