My friend Dave has an inspiring record collection. While I am sure Dave hasn't purchased a vinyl album in the last thirty years-the most contemporary pieces of vinyl I recall in his boxes are popular releases from J. Dave has been generous with his collection, lending me albums on several occasions. You see, Dave isn't one of those vinyl aficionados who believes that his records should be kept in plastic sleeves and only played in dust-free environments. Nope, Dave most obviously believes music should be heard and records are to be played. A lot.

Folk does not have to be morbidly obsessed with the darker side of life, as the commercially available releases and their respective downloads this past year seemed to suggest. Bluegrass is a form of Folk music that, in the past decade, seemed to almost parallel Folk on the Billboard charts. So, what results from about two weeks of researching the Folk and folk-influenced music of is a list of songs that I would mix into dinner parties and play on Sunday mornings.
