Caught the Mark Twain Bill Murray Award show the other night on T-V and enjoyed it very much. There were some great presenters with funny stories about Bill and Mark Twain.
The following performance was by Rhiannon Giddens doing a song The Foolish Frog. Check her out:
Little did I know that this was an old (1907) folk song that Pete Seeger updated in the 50's. Pete's version also included a story around the song that prominently features a country store. (No wonder I liked it as soon as I heard it.)
It also has the store owner (1:12 mark) telling the farmer to go home because he was busy with "all these summer people." That sounds familiar too!
