NPR interview with Joan Shelley.   I had never heard (of) her before.   What a voice.

Interesting (and nice!) version of the venerable "Fisher's Hornpipe."   Allison Krause and Mark O'Connor on fiddles; Yo Yo Ma (!) on cello.   Not sure of bass player's name, but pretty sure he's Alison Krause's "regular" bassist in Union Station.

Adam Steffey, super-great mandolinist discussing his roots.   His "New Primitive" album, recorded with his banjo-playing wife and a couple other fantastic old-timey musicians is, IMHO a masterpiece of modern interpretations of real old-time music.

Here's a website devoted to fighting for net neutrality (and other freedom of the press issues) that I've found useful.   There's a meeting at Senator Tom Udall's Albuquerque office on August 13.   If you can or want to attend, email to: esmith@freepress.net to get signed up.
