In the wake of the recent passing of Mike Waterson, we’ll explore a whole treasure trove of music by various generations of “folk revivalists” with bleak ballads, poetic lyrics and close harmonies, including some brushes with other “folk royalty.” Plus, we’ll sample from various folk traditions, new arrangements of well-known folk tunes, extensions of folk traditions, and more.
