J. D. Woods commented on Will Becker's group 6-String Banjo Group

Blues Agent replied to J. D. Woods's discussion I've waited 45 years for this! in the group Old Folkies
"I remember the late fifties, early sixties “folk revival” as a humongous piece of the musical pie. That, along with the “Hootenanny” craze, took scores of artists out of the coffee house and into the larger venues. Joan Baez,…"

"Hi, guys, Just for the record: I guess my interest/love for "old folkies" may have a lot in common, and also must be very different from yours... By '62 I was learning my first English words (in Portuguese high schools, we first…"

I've waited 45 years for this!

O my gosh!!  Even though I'd grown up on traditional folk tunes, my acute awareness of music didn't come of age until 1962.  I was eleven years old by then, but could absolutely NOT get enough of P,P&M, Kingston Trio, Weavers, Highwaymen, Terry G & the Easy Riders, Joe and Eddie, Brothers Four, Smothers Brothers, Limelighters, and the jangly, happy sound of the New Christy Minstrels.In more recent years, I've collected some Woody Guthrie, several Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, Leadbelly, even a…See More
