Drinkin’ Gourd
  • Description

Kenn Amdahl sings the old folk song Follow the Drinkin’ Gourd. Besides practicing guitar, and singing, and remembering words, when Kenn was in high school it was common knowledge that folksingers also had to introduce their songs with a story about the song. That didn’t just happen, a guy had to practice doing it. This old recording is interesting (to me and probably only me) because it represents a kid practicing his lengthy intro to an old folk song.
