If you want to learn how to make songs yourself, you take your guitar and you go to where the road crosses that way, where a crossroads is. Get there, be sure to get there just a little 'fore 12 that night so you know you'll be there. You have your guitar and be playing a piece there by yourself... A big black man will walk up there and take your guitar and he'll tune it. And then he'll play a piece and hand it back to you. That's the way I learned to play anything I want - Tommy Johnson, to his brother

"Karen Dalton-In My Own Time"
« on: June 29, 2022, 07:28:12 PM »
HI all,
The Criterion Channel currently has available for viewing a documentary film about the Folk and Blues and Country singer Karen Dalton. I think the film is well done, and it's a sad story in many ways. She started making the scene in New York City in the early '60s, and was admired by many strong musicians there. She played guitar and banjo well, and was a special sort of singer-she had a natural catch or crack in her voice and had a gift for getting at the emotional heart of a song. She was a strong artist with her own ideas about how her music should go and sound but in other ways was fragile, and not well-equipped to deal with the music business. I don't want to give too much away. If you go to and look under "True Stories", the movie is listed there, and I don't think you have to enroll to watch one movie--it's like an introductory offer. Anyhow, I thought some of you might find it interesting.
All best,
