Songs About Singers

In the February Folk Alley Chat, Sue Gilbert adds her praise of Folk Alley and adds:

“I especially like the themed sets like trains, mail, etc., and would like to make a suggestion. Back when I was in college, a friend and I put together tapes for each other of themed topics and I think our favourite were songs about singers. Things like ‘Did You Hear John Hurt?,’ ‘Song to Woody,’ ‘Song for Gamble,’ ‘The Ballad of Carl Martin,’ etc….That kind of thing. I suspect you can come up with a lot more than I ever could and I think it would be a fun set to put together and to listen to.”
