Since I was a little, little girl - Music has played a major part in my life.
I actually don't remember when it all started, because my Father was musician - he had a beautiful voice - and he would sing all kinds of songs, some of them just to me -- and I loved it!!
I remember when I was really little getting an album of the music to "Peter Pan" -- and loving it!!
When I was a little older, I was introduced to Musicals! I remember "West Side Story", "The Music Man", "Fiddler on the Roof" and "Funny Girl" !!
Then there was the Classical music - quite a bit of it.
Music is just part of my life!!
Going to College at a University of Illinois campus - Urbana-Champaign in Central Illinois - was my first taste of living away from home -- and finding my own ways to do things.
And when I was in College, I found some Music all right - live, acoustic - and some of it original, sung and played by the songwriters themselves!! It was a stimulating environment -- I wrote about it some here !
It was a Campus Coffeehouse: the Red Herring of the Channing-Murray Foundation -- and there were some great times!
Some of the things that came out of that time were a Book of Folk Music -- and several Albums of recorded music - I posted photos in a Facebook Album with some descriptions !
