Indy Lass Help: Start of Folk Career: Guidance? (69* d) RE: Help: Start of Folk Carreer: Guidance? 09 Feb 01

KingBrilliant-Yes, I'd like to form a group. I've been checking out bookstore performances, coffeehouses, etc. but the musicians I've approached have just not found common ground with what I do. I guess this is the case with a lot of musicians/perfomers. I live in central Indiana. I am influenced by Loreena MacKennitt, Connie Dover, Mary Dillon, Karan Casey, Dolores Keane, Kate Rusby and the like. I love the ballads for their stories. I play guitar with a fingerstyle I've developed playing years alone. I don't know if I have the nerve yet to busk. I've played at open mic's, bookstores, and a pub (only once because of the smoke) I must admit I'm a bit dependent on my amp for the sake of not wearing out my voice when performing. I need a group that can pick up on the music by ear because I don't have sheet music. I played with a symphony violinist who could only learn from sheet music, though we slowly managed to work out one song for a performance, and it was worth the effort. So if there are folks near here wanting to form a group, PM me!
