We're All Born Singing

Chers amis,

In case you missed our set of Cajun Music for Theatre du Reve's Salon, you can watch it on youtube (only until this Sunday). You'll learn about the music and culture of Acadian Canada, as well as the Creole culture of New Orleans in the 19th century.

We're the final set, at 1:25:05.

Theatre du Reve Salon

On Fri. Nov. 20 at noon (Eastern US), I will provide the Daily Antidote of Song for the Library of Congress American Folklife Center!

I am thrilled to be part of this week featuring Peggy Seeger, Cissa Paz, Judith Cohen, Ahi, Rik Palieri, and Kamyar Arsani, celebrating 225 days of singing!

Come hear my 21st century adaptation of the Archive's song "Jennie Jenkins".
