I discovered the music of Ewan MacColl late, about twenty seven years ago and through the songs he wrote that were sung by Dick Gaughan. I have been listening to MacColl since and buying his recordings when I can find them. You perform an extraordinary service and give us a great gift by helping to keep alive his music, the music of Barbara Dane, and so many other voices that are not sufficiently commercial or current to remain known by a large audience. For example, I had heard of Lou Killen, knew he was an important influence among many of the folk musicians whom I enjoyed; however, although I lived in Massachusetts, where he now resides, for the first three and a half decades of my life, I never heard his music before you posted it.

I value, too, that, as a father of three young adult women, I am able thanks to your blog to share so much of the the music that was so important to me and shaped my world view when I was their age. Your posst invariably lead me to to buy more music, such as that of Tom Liwa. Again, thanks so much, I am grateful that this blog remains alive as source of music, discovery, pleasure, and inspiration.
