The Folk Brothers for May 26, 2021: Transatlantic hurdy-gurdy mania

Music programs are only online for two weeks after they are broadcast.

The hurdy gurdy features prominently in European folk music, but it has also worked its way across the big pond. Today's show features hurdy gurdy-rich tracks from Spain (Milladoiro), France (Gilles Chabenat), as well as one with a Davis connection: from the late Ethan James, who was once a member of '60s psychedelic band Blue Cheer. Also on today's show: new music from John Spillane, The Felice Brothers, Watchhouse, John R Miller, and Eddie Berman. And more!
