A girl upon the shore did ask a favour of the sea;
"Return my blue eyed sailor boy safely back to me.
Forgive me if I ask too much, I will not ask for more,
but I shall weep until he sleeps safe upon the shore."
For nearly 20 years, Newfoundland group Great Big Sea
have been creating acoustic Celtic folk-rock covers and interpretations of traditional
Newfoundland and Labrador sea shanties
, fishing and party songs
, which draw from the island's rich 500-year-old multicultural (Irish, English, Scottish and French) heritage. [more inside]

Full Utah Phillips concert from 2007: 1
. If you don't know who Utah Phillips is, be prepared to meet one of the great performers of our age, telling funny stories and cracking jokes, singing great songs, and generally being a world treasure. If you want to know more about this great singer, songwriter, and peace and labor activist, you can watch an hour long documentary on him from Democracy Now
that was made after he passed away in 2008. [previously]

My name's not Brian!
Ryan Adams gives a fan a refund and asks him to leave a concert when said fan asks him to play "Summer of '69"
. Have you ever been to a concert where the performer lost it at the audience? I guess even folk rockers can be divas...
