Dear Old Dad and I have ween posting on YouTube since 2006. As of today we have 678 videos available. Dear Old Dad has taken down or deleted a handful of videos filmed when I was fat, sick and nearly dead.
YouTube suggested that we pollute our videos with advertising. We did everything they said and more. In the end it felt like we only generated revenue for YouTube. Because of this we have shut down advertising on our channel.
In lieu of advertising we have set up a Patreon account. A $1.00 contribution will help us continue to teach and share the joy of folk music with the world.
One things we have noticed is that YouTube treats you better if you have a lot of subscribers. We currently have 13,354. Please click the subscribe button when you are watching one of our videos today. Every click takes us one step closer to being treated better by YouTube.
So what are you watching when you visit our channel? Here are the ten most-watched videos on our YouTube channel over the last 28 days:
I want to barge in here early and point out that videos are a great resource, but it can’t come close to sitting down with other musicians. Come to The Maryland Folk Musicians Retreat and experience music, art and fellowship up close and personal!
