DFH, part 3…

Me and Bikemonkey are having a little competition of the DFH (that’s Dirty Folk Heroes… for the uninitiated)…. touched off by Pete Seeger.  For you, Bikemonkey- I’ll pull out the old Billy Bragg…

Although I realize this really falls more under protest than folk… but when he does this on the acoustic guitar… it’s folk! And this…

Although I have to say I’m feeling a lot better about the youth of America in the last 6 or so months…

Pete Seeger on the Mall..

Ok, I thought the crying of inauguration day was over… and then I found this in my reader…

…posted over at Effect Measure (Go over there and read the whole post) …. and I’m awash again.  I grew up listening to Pete Seeger, and I have a love for American Folk Music, and the movement that this music represents, instilled in me by my father. I love this Woody Guthrie classic… with and without the forbidden verses, I had to share.
