My parents and I sang along. I thought of this as a continuation of singing along to rolls on our player-piano. I go to folk concerts or festivals almost weekly and regret that many performers now do not encourage singing along. I think singing along is a way to carry on a culture and, often, more than one culture. While Mitch was not perfect or all-inclusive, I thank him for what he did.
