Winter Folk Mix

About two months ago I created a folk mixed tape for someone.  For me, the art of the mixed tape is alive and well.  And yes, I still call it a tape even though the format has changed.

The person it was made for has been living under a rock for quite some time, so not all of the choices are recent releases (and some are new releases of old favorites – see track #1).  It might not be my best mix I’ve ever made, but it definitely hit the spot today, which I believe warrants sharing.  I suggest checking these out.  To not clutter the blog, I have linked track names to videos where available.
