John MacKenzie Too old for folk when this is over (62* d) RE: Too old for folk when this is over 02 Aug 20

When I go to Whitby each year and see the youngsters at the dances, and hear the young whizz kids being turned out by Newcastle, and Glasgow, I don't fear for the future of our music and dance, but I do wonder what will happen to the format.
I still miss the entertainers like, Alex Campbell, Jasper Carrot, Noel Murphy, and Billy Connollys of the folk world, but as the song says, "Those days have passed, and the time's come at last, for the weakness of age to make way for the young"
I am probably too old for folk music now, at 77, but given the chance I will still indulge in, and enjoy it.
