* Weenie's CD!

It was one eclectic movement that included a fabulously diverse group of individuals. Some of us just loved to play and sing the music, some of us were into poetry, some of us were into the historical and cultural background of the music, some of us were into the current and historical political implications and applications of the music, some of us were into sex, drugs and alcohol, but everyone was a little bit into everything - Bruce Langhorn regarding the early Greenwich Village Folk scene

Thanks, Lew. It's nice to hear that one of our favorites was recognized. Same goes for D2D and the folks behind it.

Worth a revisit, IMHO:

I scrolled through the list and noticed that Leonard Cohen was nominated for the Best American Roots Performance.  It's good to know that the category is still somewhat expansive.
