Subject: RE: NPR: current Appalachian ballad singers
Thanks, Becky. You're always coming up with interesting things. I checked out your link. There's a minute-and-a-half video that starts with a young woman who must be the NPR intern Laurin Penland singing something not too terribly impressively and then goes to Sheila Kay Adams singing a snippet of "The Sailor Being Tired."

Underneath is a widget for the full six-and-a-half-minute NPR story. I'm not getting any sound from that, though. Wonder if that's just my computer or if the problem is with the website.
