Andew Bird is in a class by himself, with his perfect whistling, fiddle, guitar and tape loops. (I heard him at Radio City Music Hall with the excellent Calexico as his opening act.) For example...


Tenuous at best was all he had to say
When pressed about the rest of it, the world that is
From proto-Sanskrit Minoans
to Porto-centric Lisboans
Greek Cypriots and and harbor sorts
who hang around in ports a lot.

Here's where things start getting weird
While chinless men will scratch their beards
And to their minds a sharpened axe
Is brushed upon the Uralic syntaxes

Black Crow Blue
In Tune on Time Not Dead

Some of my folk favs: Greg Brown, John Hiatt, Karen Savoca, Patty Griffin, Ellis Paul, Richard Shindell, Ray LaMontagne, Lucy Kaplansky, Mark Erelli, Eddie from Ohio, Lucinda Williams, Richard Thompson, Ritchie Havens, the Nields, Gandalf Murphy and the Slambovian Circus of Dreams. And. . . .what is folk music without Dylan and Joni Mitchell?

All excellent choices! I heard Richard Thompson live twice recently and will hear him again twice when he returns in February. His son Teddy is talented, too, both solo and with his covers band Poundcake.

Check out my band "The Folka Dots". Angelic three-part harmonies, great original songs, all self published and independent.

Hey guys I'd like to invite you all to check out my debut CD, Dreams Into Daylight. Also, please visit my home page,, and learn about my brand new CD, "Conversations in an Empty Room." Very intimate set of songs featuring guitar, vocals and just a few keys on a couple songs. Check out my YouTube videos as well. Thank you!

I love all of the artists mentioned. Here's one more for you. Walt Winston! I saw him perform on America's Got Talent! Twice! He was on tv last year and I was in St. Louis this year and I was surprised he was back this year too! They didn't air him this year but he sounded a lot better. There were a lot of great acts that played there this year.
