We discussed folkmusic and listened to some today in Folklore. I borrowed two CDs of Laura Love's music from the professor. I'm listenin to it right now as I'm entering data. "The Clapping Song (Featuring Sir Mix-A-Lot)" is rather weird. I like it! Her music combines African American, African, and Celtic traditions. Really cool.

We also listened to some of the "O Brother Where Art Thou?" soundtrack. It was okay. We listened to some other folk artists, too. I liked shape note/sacred harp music, which is odd since I'm usually into the wall-of-sound sort of stuff.

Life would be so much duller without music.
