I've been with Folk Alley for 6 or 8 months now and I can't imagine listening to anything else. Thank you so much for the service.
I have a song suggestion--Roger Daltrey's "Without Your Love"

Or anything by Dave Insley! What a voice!

Do you play anything from Dan Berggren? He is THE Adirondak Mtn. folk singer.
Love to here him on Folk Alley.

Jim, would you consider spotlighting local hero Jerry Douglas on a few cuts from his Boone Creek days with Rickys Skaggs among others? Keep up the good work. Meet you at the Lonesome River Band concert and JAMFest at Meadow Ridge Farm. /ken

My husband and I highly recommend Girlyman's new album, "Little Star." Amazing!

I just went to iTunes "Free Music" downloads. This week they have a band called Deadman and the song is entitled "When the Music's Not Forgotten." It's a nice song from a band I've never heard before. Whether you have a PC or a Mac, you can access the music store through the free iTunes softare, you might enjoy giving it a listen.....at no cost this week.

I discovered Folk Alley last summer while working a temp job at Apple. It was great to be able to use their high-speed connection to listen while I worked. Now I can listen again because I finally got DSL at home! I'd love to hear David Elias on Folk Alley. He is an excellent singer songwriter who just released another CD called "Crossing" (his 6th).

Re Shannon's comment about free downloads. Also check out Amazon - some great tracks. Just found an old and long-lost favourite, Jerry Douglas' Fluxology.

If I could get anyone any playtime, it would be Donal Hinely. (www.donalhinely.com)

The best folk artist, singer/songwriter, I have ever had the pleasure of hearing and knowing.

He is genius.

Give the English singer/songwriter Allan Taylor a listen, he's a very accomplished guitarist too.

I'd love to hear Crooked Still here on Folk Alley... they do amazing things with traditional music. Rushad's cello (doing the fiddle parts) is incredible!

Has anyone any knowledge of the song,
"Katalina Magdalena Lupistina Walkadina Hoka Poka Loca (was her name)"??
If you do... who wrote the thing, and what are the verses? Our families used to sing this song at ho-downs since I was a young child. We would each take a turn at adding new verses on the spot, which was half the fun!

It was so nice to hear Phil Keaggy's "The Return (Way of the Pilgrim)", from his "On the Fly"... His style is sooo smooth..I recognised him instantly!
Might we hear something from his "Master and the Musician" album?
When this musician was in concert, it was obvious that he truly enjoyed making music...we would just sit back and fly for a while!

Also, I would like to hear something from the late Ted Sandquist, an excellent songwriter...and from Nedra Ross, from the Love Inn days in New York, with Phil Keaggy as well in those days.

Thanks for finding these fantastic artists. I stand amazed at your diversity.

Well, what a pleasant surprize! I heard from another listener who had read the blog and who questioned my notion that Ted Sandquist is the "late" and great. He is indeed a great songwriter, but not "late" as I had been under the erroneous opinion all these years since about the mid-to-late '70s!
My apologies to Ted Sandquist, who is alive and well, and thriving!

Also, the fantastic guitarist, Phil Keaggy, is still performing. I re-read my blurb in the blog and I realize when I had said, "When this musician was in concert..."...sounded as if I meant in the past tense, but what I had been refering to was one particular concert performance I had the pleasure of witnessing near Houston, Texas where he was enjoying the situation so much that he stayed after for an extended jam with the other musicians there. I just laid back and put my feet up and took flight for another hour or so. It was sheer magic!
One of those "best of" moments in my life.
Thank you Phil!
