Sing Out! Magazine arrived in today’s mail. It’s the Diamond Anniversary issue of the most venerable of folk music publications. I’ve been honoured to be one of the contributing writers for about half of Sing Out’s 60 years (and a subscriber for a fair bit longer). It remains an essential read for anyone interested in folk music. Congratulations to Sing Out! editor Mark Moss and everyone else connected to the magazine.
As usual, this issue of Sing Out! has a bunch of my CD reviews including:
Beyond the Pale- Postcards
Guy Clark- Somedays the Song Writes You
Stevie Coyle- Ten in One
Caroline Herring- Golden Apples of the Sun
James Keelaghan- House of Cards
Kris Kristofferson- Closer to the Bone
Frank London & Lorin Sklamberg- Tsuker-zis
Corb Lund- Losin’ Lately Gambler
Maria Muldaur- Maria Muldaur and Her Garden of Joy
Nathan Rogers- The Gauntlet
Tom Russell- Blood and Candle Smoke
Sadly, there’s also an obituary I wrote about my old friend Kate McGarrigle.
