If you were following my Songbag-a-Day project, you’ve noticed that I haven’t posted songs in a few days. Don’t worry, I’m still recording a folksong a day. I’m going to post them in chunks from now on to save myself a little bit of time and energy. Plus, since a lot of folks use this website to check on Red Yarn’s shows, I didn’t want to bury my schedule where folks can’t find it. Stay tuned, more songs from Carl Sandburg’s American Songbag to come!
