“I’m always running behind the time
Just like this train
Shaking into town
With the brakes complaining”

–Joni Mitchell, Just Like This Train

Curator and host Andrea Young notes:

Genre of music is such a tough thing for me as a curator, because while I try to select tunes that fit together, I don’t really subscribe to any one genre of music.  And much of the time it’s tough to categorize music singularly anyway.  Is Joni Mitchell folk?  Yes, but she’s also pop, jazz, a little bit of rock and roll and of course, a singer-songwriter.

These are 16 tunes that veer toward folk and singer-songwriters.  But pretty much they’re just darn talented musicians who’ve come up with a tune or performance that wows me.  Sort of in a mellow kind of way.  See what you think.  Hope you find something you like!

Including The Rifters, Joni Mitchell, Tumbleweed Wanderers, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Janis Joplin, Crosby, Stills & Nash, Elephant Revival, Dan Sheridan, Jim Croce, Gordon Lightfoot, Leonard Cohen, Sharon Isbin with Nancy Wilson, Rodriguez, Joan Baez, Bobby Henrie, and the Front Range.
