What an honor to be on this compilation with folks I grew up listening to! Sonny Terry and Brownie MGhee are folk blues legends that played in my great uncles living room in Boston, Massachusetts before I was born. They were filming an episode of Pete Seger's television show. Joan Baez was there, too. and made a big impression on my mom who was there in the audience and just 17 at the time.

I had a cassette of Doc Watson I used to listen to on my Walkman.

Life keeps moving and the music plays on. 

So many great artists on this CD.

Here's a version of the song Putumayo chose for the compilation :
