Things That Make Me Smile No. 244: Folk Tradition in the Modern Age

I come from a long-standing folk music tradition. I was raised on guitar music, including American political folk and traditional folk music from all over, though with an emphasis on Irish songs. So, you might imagine how delighted I am to have my son offer this sea shanty video to share as a smile.

The song is lovely, and the way this band brought together folks from all over (including my son) shows how the modern world provides novel ways for folk traditions to continue. Enjoy.
