#17-42: Dulcimer Masters
October 18, 2017 05:00 AM PDT

This week we examine the dulcimer. The word dulcimer is derived from the Latin with the word dulce meaning sweet and melos meaning song. In folk circles today we think of the mountain dulcimer which is thought to be from Germany and France and the Hammered Dulcimer which was developed from the Middle Eastern and Central European instrument called the Cymballon. Neither of these instruments seem to be related but have become very popular in the US and share some of the same repertoire. On this week's program, we'll hear master players of both instruments including Jean Ritchie, Bill Spence, Ken Bloom and Ken Kolodner. The sweet song of the Dulcimer … on The Sing Out!

I'm sure many of you have watched the new documentary on The Viet Nam War by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick. It's a remarkable piece of work. I became much more aware politically and musically in the second half of the 1960s, and have decided to put together a soundtrack from the era that has great significance to me and hopefully to you the listener. Included is The Electric Flag, Bonnie Dobson, The Byrds, Tom Paxton, Peter, Paul & Mary and many more. My personal Vietnam Soundtrack … on the Sing Out! Radio Magazine.

#17-39: A Fiddler's Convention, Sing Out! Style

Where I live, September means a return to school, football season and lots of Harvest Festivals. But for me, for more than 30 years, September means the annual gathering of our local fiddlers convention in Lyons Station, PA. For this week's program, we'll have our own virtual fiddler's convention as I play music from some of my favorite old-time fiddlers and string bands. This music is not that different from the music and style played in the early 1900s ... just the recording technology has changed, not the talent of the players. We'll open with John McEuen's classic rendition of Stephen Vincent Benet's poem “The Mountain Whippoorwill or How Hillbilly Jim won the Great Fiddler's Prize.” This week ... A fiddler's convention ... Sing Out! style. The Sing Out!

#17-38: Wasn't That A Mighty Storm

It's amazing how lives can change in just a very short time. The two recent hurricanes Harvey and Irma destroyed vast areas on the mainland US and in the Caribbean. For this week's show, I've collected some music appropriate to these recent disasters. The program's title, “Wasn't That a Mighty Storm,” is taken from the spiritual from the early 1900s. Its lyrics depict the Galveston Flood from 1900, which caused approximately 12,000 fatalities. We lead off with Tom Rush's classic rendition of that song ... The Sing Out!
