Today’s Music to keep me SSSSSAAAaNnNnEee In Lockdown – Joan Baez

I remember Joan as an activist and person who stood up for fairness. She didn’t write too many songs of her own but she could certainly do great versions of Dylan.

Today’s Music to keep me SssSAAaanNNNneeee in Isolation – Pete Seeger

Polonius Monk

2 years agoEvery year Pete Seeger figured out how much money he would need to support his family for the coming year and he gave that dollar figure to Harold Leventhal, his manager, and asked him to book concerts that would earn him that much money. Pete filled up the rest of his year playing for free at benefits, fundraisers, schools, union halls, rallies and every other kind of movement gathering and venue he could play and he did that for as long as he could. That’s the kind of guy he was and that’s what side HE was on. A real stand-up guy who wouldn’t name names, and was ready to go to prison for it. He was convicted of contempt of Congress for his refusal, but it was reversed on appeal. One of the best people ever and one of my heroes.

Today’s Music to keep me SSSsAAaannnEeeeE in Lockdown – John Renbourn – Another Monday

Digging out my Renbourn album – Another Monday – is a joy. It takes me straight back to my little bedroom and that seventeen year-old that I was when I bought it. He’s such a fabulous guitarist.

Today’s Music to keep me SssSAAaannnEeeEe in Isolation – Jackson C Frank

Right now I’m reading this biographical book on Jackson C Frank called The Clear Hard Light Of Genius by Jim Abbott.

It embellishes the picture I already knew. A sad tale. But I can’t get his songs out of my head so I’ve given in and started playing them!

Today’s Music to keep me SssSaaaaAnNNnNnNEeEeeE in Isolation – Jackson C Frank

I bought his album way back in 1965 and was completely knocked out by it. I only got to see him play once. We stayed behind and had a chat with him. He was such a nice guy.

So sad what happened to him. But he left us his music.

Thanks Jackson.
