Other than John Prine, I highly recommend two more - Lost Dogs and Mixed Blessings and Fair and Square. Wonderful!

The other day while wrapping a Christmas present I grew tired of going different places for things. So I fixed three small drawers with one for stickers, labels, and tags, another for Christmas-colored ribbons, and a third for non-Christmas-colored ribbons. My sister said, "It's organized! Let's sing an organizing song!" So we sang "Joe Hill"! Only in a folkie family! (We listened to Joan Baez music in the womb and have been marked for life!)

In the absence of a Major Milestones thread, which we should perhaps have, this will have to do! Meant to post these congratulations if they can be so called much earlier in the month, but was rather occupied....

Since John Lennon's son Sean was born on John's 35th birthday, on the morning of December 9 of this year Sean became older than John ever lived to be! Something to ponder!

You're right, dandelion. That is pretty mind-blowing, particularly when you remember that Sean is the younger of John's two sons, by a wide margin.

Choose your genre and enjoy the music, the history, the characters. . . and best of all. . . the time along all those wonderful back roads where the tunes have their Routes!

...Pure Americana!

"Two generations of country artists came together over 40 years ago, when this epic meeting took place between the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and Mother Maybelle Carter, Earl Scruggs, Doc Watson, Roy Acuff and LOTS of other legends." (40+ songs)

Posted on the Facebook page for Joan Baez, where someone was lamenting about keeping politics out of music and movies:

HeeeLLLOOOooo...whoever didn't get the Folk Music memo, News Flash: Folk Music IS by definition, if not always directly political, at least strongly associated with political and social issues. Joan Baez has been a folk singer since before I was born...and I'm really, really old. She was political by 1962 when she became active in Civil Rights causes and was interested before becoming active.

During the Vietnam War, (which lasted from before I was born until I was a teenager!) we were not allowed to play her albums within earshot of my father, who would scream about her political leanings, although the albums we had were all of traditional music either from other countries or from American sources dating from long before the war. After the war ended in 1975, one of us put on a Joan Baez album and Dad came charging in and yelled, as usual, "She was a traitor to her country!" My sister said, "Well, she was RIGHT, wasn't she?" Dad left the room and that's the last we ever heard about not playing Joan's music. I have continued collecting and playing it since!

Do you think Joan started political activism last week? She was doing this long before many people were alive! I, for one, am delighted to see her continuing the good (nonviolent) fight. From what she said following the 2016 election, I feared she planned to pack it all in to plant pansies.
