"Anamude, Matt Bauer, Dave DeCastro, Donna, Everything is Fine, Grumpy Bear, H-Burns, Half Asleep, Kenyon, Marc Manning, oRSo, Perio, Pollyanna, Charlie Parr, Sandusky, Shelley Short, The Tami Show"

In 1952, Harry Smith - an artist, a mad collector, and much more - compiled for Folkways Records 84 songs recorded between 1927 and 1932. This three-volume anthology, genuine memory of the American popular music, influenced the folk songwriters of the '60s to a great extent, Bob Dylan leading the way, and it still haunts today's artists (Will Oldham, 16 Horsepower, Willard Grant Conspiracy, Kristin Hersh...). A fourth volume, containing 28 more songs recorded from 1928 to 1940, came out a few years ago on Revenant Records and brought the anthology back to the fore. As we are big fans of this collection, we've asked some of our favourite bands to pay a tribute to the anthology. The covers will be available on this page as we receive them!

- The latest covers -
Perio "The Coo Coo Bird"
Shelley Short "The Coo Coo Bird"
Donna "Le Vieux Soulard et Sa Femme"

Matt Bauer "Willie Moore"
Willie Moore when he was the age of twenty-one
He courted a girl so fair;
Her eyes were bright like two diamonds in the night
And long was her raven black hair

He courted her both night and day,
To marry they did agree,
But when they went to her parents for consent,
They said that it could never be,

She threw herself in willie moore’s arms
Like so many times before
But little did he think when they parted that night
Little annie he would see no more

That very same night sweet Annie disappeared,
They searched the country 'round
And there in a creek in the blue light of morning,
The body of sweet Annie was found'

She was lifted by her weeping friends
And broght to her parents house
Her mother stood leaning in the kitchen door
"sweet annie what you gone and done now?"

And who would know where annie lies now
With chickory flowers in bloom
And long since gone is her grave by the creek
Black clouds holding up the moon
