One of the musical traditions that I grew up with folk – the old-world norther European kind as well as the underlying scots-irish that formed the backbone of Country music.

So it’s no surprise that yes, a couple Gordon Lightfoot songs are among my favorites that I’ve loved since my teens. I’m also throwing in some Disturbed – though more in power ballad mode – and a very old-school folk song, that like most scots-irish songs not about drinking, is about infidelity and death. The original version I heard was by Fairport Convention, and is well worth listening to, but does run a bit long and I prefer acoustic in this regard to electric folk.
