"Constructive criticism is what'll help her."

Yes, yes, and being young, she has no idea that what she is doing has little to do with folk music other than she is playing an acoustic guitar, and that she is striving to sing..

Also, Baez is nothing like Joni Mitchell---and visa versa!

This young person is best served by leading her in directions that will give her an actual education and not simply tell her that whatever she plucks from her own mind is folk music---.

Olddude, with all due respect, and I do respect your instincts from all the appreciative personal threads you have started, what better place to inform her than here at Mudcat?
