The Wandering Folksong

The Wandering Folksong

This album of folk songs by moonlighting biologist Sam Hinton demonstrates the porous boundaries between folk and popular music. Here, Hinton sings material from a wide variety of sources, including American family songbooks and P. W. Joyce's venerated collection of Irish tunes and ballads.
