Folk Thursday: Tom Paxton

September 25, 2014

Tom Paxton, ladies and gentlemen. No idea why I haven’t posted any of his stuff before.


Folk Thursday: Playing for Change with Keith Richards

September 11, 2014

This was Ron’s suggestion for this week. Y’all know how I feel about Playing for Change. And y’all know how I feel about Playing for Change covering Bob Marley. So obviously the only way to make a video of Playing for Change covering Bob Marley any cooler is to let Keith Richards play with ‘em.

Also, I know I’ve been neglecting this blog horribly. I’ve been too busy gardening and harvesting and canning and harvesting and canning and harvesting and buying apples and pressing cider and fermenting cider and hanging out with the niece and nephews and making cupcakes and bottling home-brewed green chile beer and making soap and shopping for exercise equipment and setting up a mini-gym in my house so we can cancel our little-used gym membership that we barely use because the hours are stupid and helping Zaphod with his dissertation and reading and chasing stories and … and … and …

Yeah. Been busy. But I have good intentions and a couple of killer salsa recipes, and I hope to have some good stuff to share with you this weekend.


Folk Thursday: Phil Ochs

September 4, 2014

I’m not entirely sure why I haven’t posted any Phil Ochs before. Let’s rectify that.


Folk Thursday: Bob Dylan

August 28, 2014

Yup, still relevant.


Folk Thursday: Dave Van Ronk

August 21, 2014

I can’t believe I haven’t posted any Dave Van Ronk songs yet. I’m lucky nobody’s confiscated my folkie card for that. Ah, well. I’ll rectify that here.


Eye candy

August 11, 2014

Two quick bits o’ eye candy for any neon junkies around here:

The Dog House, Albuquerque, N.M.

The Blue Swallow Motel, Tucumcari, N.M.

Route 66 in New Mexico. Can’t beat it.


Folk Thursday: Liam Clancy

August 7, 2014

This is one of my favorite songs. Bob Dylan ripped it off from an British folk tune. Unlike some of his stuff, it’s fairly easy to play. If you’re interested, Ultimate Guitar has chords here.
