Folk Alley Radio Show #230126

This week on Folk Alley join Elena See as we honor the late folk rock pioneer, David Crosby with music by The Byrds and Crosby, Stills, and Nash. Plus, we dig in to Folk Alley’s recently published expanded list of 100 Essential Folk Songs with music by Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Phil Ochs, and more.

In hour two, hear new music from Iris DeMent, H.C. McEntire, the Gibson Brothers, Margo Price, Ruth Wyand, and – in honor of what would have been her 60th birthday on February 2 – a newly released song by the great Eva Cassidy with the London Symphony Orchestra. All this, plus classics from Blind Willie McTell and Koerner, Ray, and Glover; favorites from Ana Egge, Watchhouse, Molly Tuttle, Rachel Baiman; and more.
