Sunday, February 21 on The Mulberry Tree


I'll be acknowledging and celebrating the folk singer-songwriters and musicians that will be part of my Black History Month edition of The Mulberry Tree this Sunday, February 21. I really enjoyed putting the playlist together for us to share for an hour around the tree.  Here's the list of musicians who will grace the airwaves this Sunday, which includes Jesse Fuller’s San Francisco Bay Blues.  His song has been recorded and covered by musicians too numerous to name.  What a joy to see him perform it himself in this week’s sneak peek playlist video, recorded in 1968!
