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.

Folk Thursday: Don Conoscenti

July 31, 2014

Don Conoscenti is a Woodyfest regular. I like this cover of “Hallelujah.” Any folkie worth a damn ought to have at least one Leonard Cohen song in his repertoire.

Folk Thursday: Amy Speace

July 24, 2014

I’d never heard of Amy Speace until Judy Collins covered this song of hers at Woodyfest a couple of years ago. It was just about the saddest thing I’d ever heard.

Folk Thursday: Ramblin’ Jack Elliott

July 17, 2014

Ramblin’ Jack covers one of the saddest things Woody Guthrie ever wrote.
