Site of the Week: 11/21-27/11

This week brings us Jon Boden's incredible undertaking of a folk song a day.  Every.  Single.  Day.  Jon Boden posts a song he recorded, either a capella or with bare accompaniment (vocals or instruments) and writes about the song's meaning, origins, and variations.  And, if you ever check out my other blog, you know that I indeed love doing that myself.  I'm sure this not only is fun for Boden, but educational as well.

Boden graduated with a degrees in Medieval Studies and Composition for Theatre.  Needless to say, folk music is his forte, as is the historical analysis of their enigmatic origins.  Not only will you hear traditional folk tunes, but also more recent ones with a Bodeny twist.
