What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve?


A new year and three new blogs for the blogroll.

Brendan and Jason describe The Rising Storm as “an mp3 blog about fine forgotten albums.” An example? How about Jerry Jeff Walker’s Driftin’ Way of Life? Brendan’s affectionate treatment of this classic is just right. Go read it.

And how can you resist a blog that posts mp3s of Carla Thomas, The Clash, and Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan on the same page? Don’t even try! It’s called For The Sake Of The Song, and you’ll find it here.

For all things, dulcimer, check out Carla Maxwell’s Dulcimer Blog, tonight featuring Cyndi Lauper. Really.

New Year’s Eve really isn’t a folk music holiday, I don’t think. The closest I could come was Rufus Wainwright singing What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve. Rufus, of course, is the son of Loudon Wainwright and Kate McGarrigle, and acquires honorary folk credentials thereby. He’s also a hell of a musician. Enjoy the music and have a safe holiday and a happy 2009.
