Folkways blows my mind two ways

  1. First, Stella Brooks sings on a Joe Sullivan record on Folkways, “Rabbit Foot Blues” but it lifts a verse from Stella’s signature song “I’m a Little Piece of Leather”.

Two, there’s a Dartmouth alumna Mali O that plays with Lulu Wiles a folk group out of Nashville; she is also playing jazz bass on a Don Cherry tribute album I’m sponsoring out of New Mexico. It’s led by trumpet player Delbert Anderson who I met virtually at Folk Alliance. I wonder if it’s helpful to put Mali in touch with some of the Dartmouth ‘70s who knew Don’s bass player Johnny Mbizo Dyanni.
