The references I give you are from YOU TUBE FOLK MUSIC
Oh Thank the heavens that We have our Club back.
What a night March 2nd was!! The Quality of the performances
was real GREAT: Some Great Songs,
SO? What is going to be My First Choice this time?
Well let’s have one of the good Oldies!!
Do you Remember this? (No you’re much too young)
Peter, Paul, and Mary – Blowing in the Wind 3.00
Oh they were good – They really did help change things.
The 60’s were When Americans became BIG in Folk.
Then an English guy called Paul Simon teamed-Up with
a guy called Art Garfunkle, and A Song was born that
REALLY changed the Folk World:
Simon & Garfunkle Bridge Over Troubled
Water (Audio) 4.53
And The whole Folk really took off .. Folk became wider, bigger:
No Longer just Working Man Songs.:
So we had songs like this:
Creedence Clear Water Revival – Have You Ever
The Rain ((Official) 3.04
Everybody sang it.. superb song,, Yes Even the Old guy did it
Willie Nelson and Family featuring Paula Nelson:
Have You Ever Seen The Rain (Live) 5.46
There is some real lovely music there, and talking about Rain _
There is another Lady I like a lot, who has a rain song.
Alison Krauss – River in the Rain (Live Version)
Now: Lets hear another Lady I am always Happy to hear Anytime!!.
Oh Yes Enjoy THIS:
Norah Jones – Come Away With (Official
Music Video) 3.14
So You might say Is that Folk?. Well I do not know WHO decides..
But it will certainly always be welcome in RAYS CHAT.
And whilst still with the Ladies Let’s hear a New Lady..
This Lady won an American Singing Competition:
And: I like Her. So listen to this:
Maddie Poppe – Nothing Good Comes Out
Of California 3.39
I think We might be hearing some Great songs from Maddie:
And This also is a new Lady Singer to me..
Joss Stone – Breaking Each Other’s Hearts 3.54
OK: So the Ladies have had their turn:
I reckon it is time the boys to have a go…
and this guy is certainly, getting making a VERY BIG impression
on the Music World:
Callum Scott – Rise (Official Video) 3.36
Ok So We have heard some of the Newer Songs.
BUT: I still remember the days of the Great Irish:
So: Come on; Put your Best singing voice On;
and maybe wet your voice a little, and give this a Blast:
One of the truly GREAT FOLK SONGS of all time.

And How Do You Follow That? Well I only know One Man, who
Has the Magic to be able to do it:
Oh Yes.. Finbar Fury, is that Man.
