Welcome Setting The Woods On Fire Readers!


A million thanks to Paul at Setting the Woods On Fire for his gracious post today and thanks to all of you for stopping by – if there’s anything I can do to make you feel more at home just let me know in comments. This blog started out as a companion to a course I was teaching on Harry Smith’s Anthology of American Folk Music – the course is over, but the blog endures.

Now that you’re here, stay awhile and browse through the archives – I usually attach a video to each post, and some of them are pretty good. My current favorites are Mrs. Etta Baker and Elizabeth Cotten – but feel free to wander around and discover your own.

Here are the Louvin Brothers – please listen and enjoy a happy holiday season!
