SHOW 181

This week we have Do Your Thing’s first guest mix live in the studio, which is hopefully something we will have happening on the show from time to time. Joining us for this inaugural guest mix is longtime friend, advisor to the show and fellow hills dweller, Digby, who will be sharing with us a beautifully crafted selection of songs over the next hour. From Digby: “I’ve selected some folk songs spanning from around the 50s up till now. We’ll hear some traditional British, Irish and Appalachian folk songs, some music from the artists associated with the British and American folk revivals that peaked in the 60s, and the ongoing influence of those movements and songs on more contemporary artists.” Photo: Jean Ritchie.
