HOLIDAY EPISODE

Featured video: “January, February (Last Month of the Year)” by Elizabeth Mitchell and Friends from the album, The Sounding Joy: Christmas Songs In & Out Of The Ruth Crawford Seeger Songbook (Smithsonian Folkways, 2013). The Sounding Joy is a spirited collection of folk carols drawn from Ruth Crawford Seeger’s 1953 songbook American Folk Songs for Christmas. Featuring Elizabeth Mitchell and a luminary list of her musical family, friends, and neighbors, this album celebrates the spirit of community and homespun traditions that existed in times before the commercialization of Christmas. Natalie Merchant, Aoife O’Donovan, Amy Helm, John Sebastian, Dan Zanes, Happy Traum, and many others including special guest Peggy Seeger all add their voices to pay tribute to a collection revered in the canon of American Music.
