On the heels of the death of Pete Seeger this week, this I’m A Fan, Fridays! focuses on a couple of musicians who continue to carry high the torch Seeger carried for so many years in the folk music tradition.
Dave Rawlings and Gillian Welch blew me away with a mash-up of sorts of a new song by Rawlings and a great Woody Guthrie song.
I first saw their performance of this piece as part of the Inside Llewyn Davis musical concert, Another Day, Another Time on Showtime. The concert was a celebration of the folk music scene in the early 1960s in New York City, the time period during which the film takes place.
The concert featured a number of fantastic artists and is well worth checking out if you can get to the Showtime network. All of the acts were terrific in the show, but I really became a fan of these two. I hope you will as well. Enjoy!
