Do you like to sing or play an instrument - or both?

I play the guitar, and I've always loved singing. So I do both. Started in church choir, then middle and high school groups. I love folk songs, especially ballads and songs with deep historical significance, or poetic songs with a strong message. Dick Gaughan is currently one of my fav folksingers. What got me started on the guitar was a local bluegrass monthly get-together that my dad introduced me to in Suffolk, VA. Just watching people singing and picking and having a good time made me go out and buy my own guitar, though it wasn't till recently that I put down the pipes and started trying to learn the guitar in earnest. I like a little flatpicking as well but it's quite difficult; I mostly just strum and sing, either just straight strumming or bluegrass-style bass-strum-bass-strum. But I don't really know much about it; I just play and sing by myself so I have a lot to learn. I mostly just love the togetherness that one feels when playing/singing/dancing with a group of people.

What is the last (most recent) song you learned to sing or play?

"It Isn't Nice" by Malvina Reynolds, and "The Digger's Song" by Leon Rosselson.
