> Thanks; that Maria Mulduar self-titled is the album I was thinking about. It had some lively songs on it, one of which I found on Youtube, where I also came across a wonderful song from her days with Jim Kweskin Jug Band. If you like Maria´s so-high-it´s-going-to-crack voice as much as I do, have a listen to these:-





> Yes, Kottke´s a great guitar player. I read once that as a teenager he taught himself by listening to John Fahey records, but he didn´t know that they were double tracked, so he was actually learning to play two guitar parts simultaneously! Maybe that explains some of his speed and dexterity.

Maria's ex-husband, Geoff Muldaur is playing bottleneck guitar and singing the male vocal part on Chevrolet.

They divorced in 1972. Geoff went on to play with Paul Butterfield's band, Better Days.

Below is a 2010 tape of Geoff reminiscing about his Jug Band days and playing the ragtime blues song Downtown Blues.

Gorgeous track from Megan Henwood's debut album, Making Waves. If only the rest of the album was this good...

Looking for Nordic neofolk music. Anyone know of any good groups?

Only really got into folk about a week ago when I watched the BBC documentary called Folk America (highly recommend you watch it)
After that I downloaded some compilation albums of some of the artists that sounded good to me.
Henry Thomas and Blind Lemon Jefferson are great, also downloaded the Anthology Of American Folk, which is a 4+ hour long compilation of old 20's and 30's folk songs.
Also downloaded the albums Today! and The Immortal by Mississippi Joh Hurt, which is my favourite out of the bunch.

For about five years, I listened to nothing but pre-World War II, American folk & blues. At the time I was a bit of a purist... but if the music was recorded after 1940, I wasn't interested in it.

Mississippi John Hurt was also a favorite of mine. The first song I learned on guitar was Hurt's My Creole Belle. John Hurt could play and sing in about any style, be it popular ballads, ragtime, or delta blues. He was also a prolific songwriter who left a huge legacy of original songs.

Hurt spent most of his life doing back breaking labor after his musical career failed in the late 1920s. He would have died in obscurity had he not been discovered in Avalon Mississippi by a blues historian in 1963. Subsequently, Mississippi John Hurt embarked upon a wildly successful music career at age 70.

All Music writes:
Quote:
A series of concerts were arranged, including an appearance at the Newport Folk Festival, where he was greeted as a living legend. This opened up a new world to Hurt, who was grateful to find thousands, or even tens of thousands of people too young to have even been born when he made his only records up to that time, eager to listen to anything he had to sing or say. A tour of American universities followed as did a series of recordings: in a relatively informal, non-commercial setting intended to capture him in his most comfortable and natural surrounding.
Hurt died three years after his rediscovery but in that short period he recorded dozens of songs for Vanguard Records and the Library of Congress.

Embedded below is a rare video of a live television appearance by Mississippi John Hurt in 1963.

Hamish Imlach- Cod Liver Oil & Orange Juice


Live

Quote:
He had his biggest hit in the late 1960s with "Cod Liver Oil and the Orange Juice," a scurrilous and hilarious take on the American gospel standard "Virgin Mary Had a Little Baby" written by Ron Clark and Carl MacDougall. The song was for a time banned by the BBC as it was assumed to be full of double meanings, but at one point became the most requested song on British Forces Radio.
