Warming Up the New Year on Folk Tales

We’ll warm up the Folk Tales corral with some January fun, including visits with two of folkdom’s favorite legends, Tom Rush and Rosalie Sorrels; Fairport Convention, who put the British into British folk-rock; a birthday toast to Robert Burns; and some folk mysteries, like the classic song Joni Mitchell thought was “probably terrible;” why klezmer music is called “the blues of Europe;” the fiddler who’s one of Linda Ronstadt’s favorite singers; why Harry Belafonte thought Bob Dylan hated him––and what changed his mind after 40 years. Along with lots of great music, some old familiars and some surprises.
