Just a quick note to let folks know that, although I'm holding off on posting anything of real significance this close to the move, thanks to some amazing benefactors and patronage, I'm hoping to have good news and a new site address sometime later this week. (Of course, there's always room for a bit more encouragement as the process continues; if you haven't had a chance to offer your support, please check out our call for patronage below.)
The plan is to resume regular twice-weekly posting, with the depth and breadth you have come to expect from Cover Lay Down, by next Sunday at the latest. In the meantime, here's some coverfolk tunes to keep your ears humming while you wait, from Emm Gryner's pianofolk take on a personal thrash metal fave to Tim O'Brien's chunky newgrass take on an old gospel spiritual, and from the Irish siren croon of Cara Dillon to the Cape Breton Celtic of The Cottars. Plus two ragged favorites previously posted, just to top the list off right.
- Cara Dillon & Sam Lakeman: Wait (orig. The Beatles)
(from Rubber Folk)
- Emm Gryner: Waiting Room (orig. Fugazi)
(from the Live at the Point bootleg)
- Redbird: Hold On (orig. Tom Waits)
- The Cottars: Hold On (orig. Tom Waits)
- Tim O'Brien: Hold On (trad.)
(from Cornbread Nation)
- Richard Thompson: It Won't Be Long (orig. The Beatles)
(from 1000 Years of Popular Music)
Cover Lay Down will return.
