Thread Name: Folk Music On PBS
Subject: RE: Folk Music On PBS
I have not seen the show in question so my comments are on past PBS folk legend / fundraising specials.
There was one on Woody done quite some time ago that I have on tape and often watch. It has Arlo discussing his father with some of Woody's friends such as Pete , Rambling Jack Elliot , Sonny Terry etc.
They would then jam with Arlo on some of Woody's songs. There were also later singers whom Woody influenced such as Joan Baez , Judy Collins, and Emmylou.
There was an excellent one on The Weavers , and another on Leadbelly.
They were great shows and perhaps they will be repeated some day.
My only complaint is that they only air this stuff when they are fundraising.
