Folk Thursday: Tom Jones and Dolly Parton

April 17, 2014

Yes, I just posted Tom Jones on Folk Thursday. I was actually looking for something else, but this was too good to pass up.

On-Time Folk Thursday: The Weavers

April 10, 2014

Does it get more folk revival than the Weavers singing “Goodnight, Irene”?

Belated Folk Thursday: Neil Young

April 6, 2014

From a 1992 concert in Oregon. I’m not a big fan of Neil Young’s voice, but “Just Like Tom Thumb’s Blues” sounds appropriate coming out of his mouth.

Folk Thursday: Joan Baez and Mary Travers

March 27, 2014

Recorded at Newport in ’63, I believe.

Folk Thursday: Emmylou

March 20, 2014

I need to learn this song. That is all.

Folk Thursday: Walela

March 13, 2014

I never get tired of this song.

Sorry it’s a bit delinquent; this week has been nuts. Vegan Friday and Eco-Saturday probably won’t show up on time, either. I’ll try to do better next week.

Folk Thursday: Coyote

March 6, 2014

There are better things than curling up on the couch and listening to Joni Mitchell’s “Coyote” on vinyl, but you have to go to New Mexico to find them.

Folk Thursday: Lead Belly

February 27, 2014

It doesn’t get more folk revival than Lead Belly singing “Goodnight Irene.”

Without Lead Belly, there’s no Woody Guthrie. Without Woody Guthrie, there’s no Bob Dylan. And without Bob Dylan, there’s basically no ’60s as we know it.

Folk Thursday: Bob Marley

February 20, 2014

Does Bob Marley singing an acoustic version of “Redemption Song” count as folk? (And is anybody really going to complain if it doesn’t?)

Folk Thursday: Aretha

February 13, 2014

My definition of “folk” gets looser every week. You will deal.
