Hi, As you can tell from my screen name, my name is Dan and I come from California (near SF). Well, at least until recently I did, since in the fall/winter of 2003/2004 Iím relocating to Pennsylvania (near Philly). I started listening to folk music in the early 60ís, with the likes of Peter, Paul & Mary, Limelighters, Kingston Trio, Chad Mitchell Trio, Weavers, Pozo Seco Singers, New Christy Minstrels, etc. Somehow I just got stuck there in the 60ís. As the world of music went through acid rock, disco, heavy metal, rap, etc, I just stayed with folk. I must say though finding any of it in the 80ís and 90ís was quite challenging (thank God for public radio). Now that the age of the internet is here, I live again. I can listen all the time to what I like. The best part though is finding friends I never knew I had who just happen to live in all parts of the world and who Iíve never actually met in person. That has been a great joy to me. Thanks to all of you ďFolk FansĒ folkies. For sharing your love of this music and for introducing me to artists I never would have heard without you. May the joy never end.
I love Celtic music obviously, soundtracks, and a little bit of a lot of things. I'm a Christian 18-year- old who's planning to be an elementary school teacher when I finish college.
My real name is Sherri and I live in Kansas USA. I have a passion for classic & Folk. I have 1 Daughter Melinda ( almost 14 ) and 2 calico cats. I enjoy my time with my online friends :)

My family and I live in the South of Germany. Three years ago I met Claire (FolkPhile) on Napster. I made a fantastic friend and because of her never ending patience, I became familiar with soooo many new artists and music using the usenet. Last but not least, I got to know so many NICE folks here at the Folk Fans-channel.
My special thanks and greetings to Claire, Carolyn, Harold, John, Maik, Nick and Pat!
Been a folkie for 40+ years. Acquired a taste for olde English music (and beer) while doing an Engineering PhD in Cambridge (hence the Dr part). Musical interests are folk, celtic and old acoustic blues. 4 kids, All have left home at least once. They do tend to come back so the house is never empty. Travel a lot for work and take my Archos mp3 player with me to keep sane. When home in Toronto, Canada, I hang out online, build speakers and other wooden and electronic things. And listen to a lot of music.
My name is Rolf, aged 56, living near Munich (Germany) with my wife and two kids (19 and 21). I have been a music fan since my early youth, with many different tastes, not only folk.

Hi all - my name is Dean & I live in Maryland, just north of Baltimore. I have two grown sons, several ex-wives in various states of estrangement, and for my sins I have been involved in ethnic music off and on for the last 35 years. The moniker comes from some criticís thumbnail sketch of the character Stephen Daedelus Ė which simply leapt off the page and onto my back. I am so grateful your splendid company, folk-fans
oh Danny boy (Danilo)
I'm Danilo from Genoa, Italy. While I'm a jazz music listener from radio, my collection is mainly European folk music with a big interest in Italian, North European, Hungarian and British folk music. -And I'm a bit of a klezmer freak as well
A must have for all collectors of Scots Ballads and Child Ballads!
