I became interested in Folk Music back in the sixties, when somehow The Kingston Trio and Peter, Paul, and Mary broke into the mainstream with Tom Dooley and Puff, The Magic Dragon. Imagine that.....music even I could sing! It was a few years later that I picked up my sister's Gibson and taught myself those few basic chords that can play a multitude of songs. I never aspired to greatness and consider myself a "parlor or campfire" musician.
|I wanted to present here some links to my favorite artists and where to find their music. Not all of these wonderful musicians have their own home page...at least I haven't been able to find one! In those cases, I have linked to pages that have some information on them.|
I have discovered a long lost cousin in Canada who is a musician and folk singer.
Needless to say, my whole family is pretty excited about finding TC Pettit!
