In the tradition of Dylan and Simon, down through John Prine and Dar Williams, who are the best working today? I'm going to see Erin McKeown next week, and she's quite good. Saw Ani Difranco last spring--didn't enjoy the show much. She seems to be leaving her roots towards a more electro-hip hoppy thing. Kudos to her for evolving, but I'm not diggin' it. I'd like to catch Iris Dement at some point. Who else: John Gorka? Lucy Kaplansky?
