An exciting exploration from
sea shanties to murder folk
with Khrysso Heart LeFey
at Joshua Tree’s Beatnik Lounge
April 11 from the “purist” point of view, in which songs are born of tradition and evolution in community
April 18 from the “music of the folk” point of view, in which songs are considered “folk songs” because they are in the common repertoire
April 25 from the “if it walks like a duck” point of view, which brought us the ’50s and ’60s folk revival
