I was wandering through You Tube’s 1960s Archives:
and found an article about How the SEEKERS got started,
and had their First NUMBER ONE HIT.
I found it VERY interesting- & Thought You mightfind it interesting How they got started
The Story of ‘I’ll Never Find AnotherYou’
by The Seekers, 1964-2019 9.59
I was really surprised that the BBC Would Not Play them
as they did not Have a HIT Song. At that time.
It was Radio Caroline that made them their first NUMBER ONE. (Britain’s First Commercial Radio)
But that was all a long time ago:
So I asked YOU TUBE..
WHO are the FASTEST Growing FOLK GROUP: NOW?
And it came up with this:
The Dead South – In Hell I’ll Be In Good Company [Official Music Video] 4.09
Well What did you think?
Then I asked YOU TUBE: What is the Best New Folk Song?
And it came-Up with this:
Passenger | Sword From The Stone 3.27
Well Passenger is definitely making a Big Name, and I have featured them before.
SO YES: I think We will hear more of them.
But Lets see if YOU TUBE thinks there are any Good new Songs?
And it came-up with this:
Pink, Willow Sage Heart Cover Me in Sunshine (Official Video) 2.36
I don’t really think that was FOLK?? But it was a Great Video.
AND: now How would you like an Irish Street band to Perform for you?
