One time I thought about doing a Elizabeth Cotton season and made a playlist of many of her song. Here it is if anyone is interested.Thanks Wiggy! I'd not seen that, but my brother and I learned to fingerpick in the early sixties by slowing down Libba's Negro Folk Songs & Tunes LP from 33rpm to 16rpm which dropped it an octave so we didn't have to re-tune. I still play songs from that LP. Maggie and I did Freight Train and Shake Sugaree at an open mic the week Libba died in the summer of 1987.
Here's my favourite photo of Libba. I had it on my wall for a number of years.
