Thread Name: New Sing Out! Songfinder - Joe Hickerson
Subject: New Sing Out! Songfinder - Joe Hickerson
My favorite column in Sing Out! Magazine is the "Songfinder." I check it as soon as the issue arrives, hoping to find that we're much better songfinders here. They've had some pretty big guns as previous Songfinders - Bob Lurtsema, Michael Cooney, Bob Blackman, Jean Kozel, Diane Petro, Holly Tannen, and Shelley Posen. It alway made me feel good to know I knew something Shelley Posen didn't, and it was nice to see that he and Holly Tannen both made use of Mudcat.
Well, the new Songfinder is a truly worthy competitor, Joe Hickerson. He has had years of experience at the Library of Congress. He did a great job on his first column, but he would have done a bit better if he had visited our thread on Julie Ann.
Another of my favorite columns is Faith Petric's "The Folk Process." You'll always find lots of Mudcatter contributions there.
