Folk Thursday: Melanie Safka

Listening to Melanie kind of makes my vocal cords hurt, but I love her anyway, and this video is worth watching for the audience alone. Could they be more Establishment, sitting there in their horn-rimmed glasses and Sunday best, clapping along awkwardly and looking confused? Bless their hearts, I don’t think this was exactly what they were expecting when they came to the show. Hilarious.
