The Flowing Waters of Lake Jefferson

Saturday February 24, 2007: The 70's and the 07's

Today Sonja Hedlund, host of Ballads and Banjoes had a fill in host as she headed for Norway. The host was 24, and I was delighted to hear her playing standard and modern folk .. be good tanyas, leonard cohen, kd lang..... her tastes and the fact she was hosting today was so serendipitous considering the theme I was working on. I always wonder who is enjoying this contemporary folk/pop/celtic/bluegrass mesh that I simply call folk. I called up the fill in host who said her parents didnt listen to this, she just "fell into it".
 I explored a bit of what some of us were listening to in the 70s. Did it lay any foundation for what we are listening to today? Who is continuing some of the same themes and artists works?
