I see that both Tom Paxton and Pete Seeger have been nominated for a Grammy Award.

So has Rosalie Sorrels, with her incredible CD Strangers in Another Country - the Songs of Bruce "Utah" Phillips. Seldom have I heard so much love poured into a recording. It's going to be a tough competition this year - all deserve the award.

good luck to all..
now that we have someone in the white house that many of us voted for,
perhaps also our choice for performers and recordings will win the vote!

The Kathy Mattea Coal album is very good, too.
Still competition this year.

See, when I get back from Deecee next week (George just can't let go of the White House, crying and screaming, "But it's MINE!!" and Laura has asked for my help with him again) I'll be buying all of the folk, blues, jazz, Hawaiian, and Native American nominee albums for the library. You could suggest to YOUR public library that they do this too -- through Camsco Music, of course, as I will be buying them.

Rapaire, don't forget the Cajun & Zydeco...

And World, and World/Contemporary

and Children's Music

and Children's Spoken Word

and maybe Adult Spoken Word

and for good measure, since it sounds interesting, Harry Shearer's "Songs of the Bushmen"

:-)

Oh, I get all of them.

Others buy the "popular" stuff -- I get to buy the stuff that lasts.

I love Cathy Mattea but my heart says Pete Seeger or Tom Paxton. They're all great!

Give a listen to Rosalie Sorels STRANGERS IN ANOTHER COUNTRY, her tribute to Utah Phillips. My heart wants her to win, but I think that either Pete Seeger or Kathy Mattea will probably win, but they are all deserving. Incidentally, I hear that Paxton is going to get the Life Achievement Award.

This is a tough one. Too many sentimental favorite AND too many wonderful CD's. Everyone should have a copy of each in their library - they are that good!!

I think it will come down to Pete Seeger or Kathy Mattea.   Personally I think they are the strongest recordings of the bunch - each cut fits in the context of the album and collectively make for a superb recording.   

I think Pete Seeger's CD was brilliantly produced by David Bernz and he created an epic - perhaps the best recording of Seegers illustrious career - and there are many good choices from his discography.   

I think Kathy Mattea's project was ambitious and it works. It is very difficult for someone with such a stunning voice to make these songs sound real, but there is increcible connections that come through.

The contemporary songwriters in the Folk catagory are also superb this year. Good job!

Pete Seeger, At 89!

Congratulations to Pete, David Bernz, Jim Musselman, and all concerned. Also congratulations to Peggy, Tom, Kathy and Rosalie - it was the toughest competition I've ever seen in this category. Pete's at home, but I gather the others are going out to toast one another after the ceremony. After all, they're all long time friends.

In my interview with Tom Paxton he commented that he doubts he will win since the other contenders are so outstanding. Of course, he states, people will say--"..you never know"but, as he said- "..I do and I have been right 3 times now".

He is, however, getting a life achievment award with people far different than his genre of music--as he stated---"go figure". But he does love the Grammys, he said---great parties and you meet really big names. I would hope that others would be as thrilled to meet him as well.

You can read Pete's reaction here. "I suspect," he said, "the reward for longevity."
