I've been looking forward to this one.

I have to include some Pete Seeger to start.

Pete Seeger- If I Had A Hammer

Pete Seeger- We Shall Overcome

Leadbelly, one of the most influential and admired folk/blues/roots musicians of the 30s

Leadbelly- Goodnight Irene

Leadbelly- House Of The Rising Sun

One of my favorite folk songs of all time, Shenandoah. It has been covered so many times, so I'll pick a good one.

The Brothers Four- Shenandoah

And I want to include some of my favorite covers from Bruce Springsteen's Seeger Sessions, because it's the one thing he does a great job on.

Bruce Springsteen- John Henry

Bruce Springsteen- O Mary Don't You Weep
