Subject: RE: Young Folkies?
Leadfingers!!!! Too old?? I think not - Experienced? Yup!

Anyroadup, most folk events have youth activities set aside for them as don't want to 'fogie' with us lot although when I've run singarounds and sessions i am always pleased to see the numbers of youngsters in amongst.

One of the best folk/pub band I've ever seen are The Phatt-B'Stards and they get their kids up as backing vox - Kids all teens now but have been festivalling (?) with the wrinklies since they were 5.

My two daughters were fully paid up members of Chichester folk club at ages 2 & 3 (albeit their subscription was to help with the raffle) and continue to be full members and they are now 16 & 17 and have a great time meeting up with 'old friends' each year at Broadstairs, Fareham, Winchester, Caversham etc etc

I've rambled too much - Sorry
