I grew up in Virginia and now live in California..actually I'm now 64 and haven't quite 'grown up' yet.
I first learned to play guitar playing 'Carter Family' style music -- old folks songs from Virginia, many of which had drifted to Virginia from Europe.
As I've explored many kinds of music and the music of different cultures over the years, I've maintained an attitude that it's really all folk music. That is, I'm always looking for the contribution music makes to our everyday lives.
Even composing something as abstract as music made from DNA sequences - see www.melosync.com/sounds/sg_cd_short.htm - a big part of it for me was to offer my passion in support of a suffering child Sophia, her family and her community.
Music as part of community...it's all folk music to me!
