M Magazine: Young Folk, New Traditions

Photo courtesy of Broadcast 2000’s Joe Steer. This is currently my computer background.

For Folk’s Sake founder and all around awesome person Lynn Roberts recently wrote an article for M Magazine about new-folk’s steady rise in popularity. Guess who’s featured in it? Me! Needless to say I’m pretty excited to be in print, but I haven’t actually been able to get my literal or figurative hands on the text until today.

Lynn traces the roots of the ‘new-folk’ movement (and, of course, challenges that categorization) from its early Bosun’s Locker days to its present mainstream successes. To read the full article, click here.

Blog Fail

Hello delightful readers,

I have to apologize for the massive blog post shortage over the past few weeks. Besides the ridiculously heavy work load for school, I’m also moving–which means most weekends find me putting baby pictures in boxes and throwing away six year old movie ticket stubs. I’ve now realized that there isn’t a whole lot that separates me from the people on Hoarders.

Anyway, I’m supposed to be reading about freak shows right now (we rhetoric majors have all the fun), but expect increased activity in the next few days.

In the meantime, enjoy this short playlist of study jams du jour.
