Folkstreams

If you like old documentaries about life, music and culture I can highly recommend Folkstreams, A National Preserve of Documentary Films about American Roots Cultures. There are a couple of documentaries by Alan Lomax that are pretty interesting.

 

Martin Guitar Anthology eBook

The FJ's Martin Guitar Anthology eBook
The Fretboard Journal’s Martin Guitar Anthology eBook
After nearly ten years of publishing, the FJ has amassed quite an array of stories featuring iconic Martin guitars and Martin artists. We decided to partner with Martin to share some of these great stories once again (a few have been out-of-print for years now). Included are the full-length (and, in some cases, out-of-print) features on Tony Rice, David Crosby, Loudon Wainwright III and many others. We’ve also included the latest edition of Martin: The Journal of Acoustic Guitars, their in-house magazine filled with more Martin tales. We hope you like this eBook anthology and stay tuned for future editions featuring your favorite brands and artists.

Hank Williams
Hank Williams, one of country musics early super stars

Araceli and I watched this BBC documentary last weekend and it was pretty good. If you are not much of a country fan it could work pretty well as an introduction to, The Joy Of Country.
