Have you ever performed music in front of an audience (not counting Karaoke or social jams)?

All my life

Do you play or are you learning a musical instrument? If so, which?

I'm a Singer first and foremost, then my main box, a 5 octave solid body electric-acoustic hammered dulcimer I designed and built (first and only) , also guitar, piano, hand drums.

Who's your #1 favorite folk or folk-rock performer? Or, who are some of your favorites?

don't believe in #s: Beatles, Greatful Dead, Seldom Scene, Jackson Browne James Taylor, Joni Mitchell, Gordon Lightfoot, The Weavers, Peter, Paul, and Mary, W & A Guthrie, M. J. Hurt, Leadbelly, Stephen Foster, Crosby Stills,and Nash, Bob Marley etc

What are some of your favorite folk or folk-rock songs?

Too many to list! Changes and evolves regularly with mood and circumstance, though I am not up on modern stuff, though I'm sure there's plenty great new songs I haven't heard, would like to learn new stuff from people

Tell us anything else about yourself you'd care to tell. Answering all these questions is optional, but we're interested.

Pro Folksinger but really miss singing with other people, and I sing and play for fun, too. I want to jam, maybe find people to perform or record with. I'm gone a lot, but have a house 3 mi south of Alexandria, come jam any time/day[masked]

What Brian the F. is saying about this Meetup Group

Glad it is finally happening, I miss singing with other people more than anything. Thanks for getting it started
