There were hootenanny's or sing along time with folk music and of course rock had Woodstock. My claim to fame was singing in our church choir alongside Sylvia Fricker who shortly thereafter, teamed up with Ian Tyson. Folk music was sung in the coffee houses and around the campfire. Did you participate?
What are your memories of folk music. Here is a memory of Bob Dylan in his very early days. There are some references to computers, and the cold war. It is of course the American perspective. Check out your old song books and records. See what you think. The jazzy ending is rather interesting.
