The ongoing exploration of New Orleans musicians Alex Mcmurray and Jonathan Freilich into various folksong styles from all over. If you are into things like Dave Van Ronk, Gary Davis, Ramblin’ Jack Elliott, Paul Clayton, Jimmie Rogers, The Holy Modal Rounders, Doc Watson, etc. …or songs about peoples actual travails without much post-Dylan obfuscation (don’t panic we like the Zimmy)…If you are interested in that you will probably like this.
