Listening to...

I have been doing a lot of sewing in my craft room lately, and whiling away the time by listening to the podcast Tapestry of the Times broadcast out of Baltimore. It's a show that features the Smithsonian Folkways Recordings, and you'll hear everything from Indonesian traditional music to banjo players in Appalachia to Pete Seeger. Just read this description of Episode 8:

In this episode of Tapestry of the Times: Gourd banjo music from Mike Seeger, a rare recording of a young Bob Dylan, Calypso music from Trinidad, and the final performance of folk legend Dave Van Ronk. Plus: a cowboy ballad from Lead Belly, and “Mean Talking Blues” from Woody Guthrie.

The only bad thing is at this rate I'll be done listening to all of them before the week is through.
