Signs you have not failed as parents: Left to his own devices, your child puts on a CD of weird Scandinavian music.

So I’ve learned a good bit about George KING. He was born in Scituate, RI and lived there until the 1790s; he fought in the Revolution; he married and raised a family; he moved to Norwich, NY; he collected a pension; and he died in infancy. Wait, what?…

Regarding this:(click for slightly larger version) I’ve been told that after it was microfilmed, the paper copy was destroyed. So unless another copy of the 22 Nov 1905 Brookfield Courier turns up, looks like we never get to find out who they said…

Great moments in folk music:

"After William Kimber achieved some level of fame through his work with Cecil Sharp, he played some shows in major concert halls of London (he also had audiences with two English monarchs!). At one of these concerts, his concertina broke. The audience hastily took up a collection, and somebody ran to the nearest music store and brought back a new Jeffries and gave it to Kimber, and the concert resumed." — Will Quale on Facebook
