A Singing Army: Zilphia Horton and the Highlander Folk School‘ is now available everywhere books are sold!

For personalized, signed books, I recommend ordering from my hometown indie, Malaprop’s Bookstore. Scroll down for upcoming events and archived video of past #zilphiabook events.

Also, This, on Bob Dylan:

THE WORLD OF BOB DYLAN, edited by Sean Latham – Due April 30, 2021 from Cambridge University Press

I contributed a chapter about the way Bob Dylan and The Band, The Basement Tapes, and the most interesting years of Dylan’s career (1965-75) influenced the rise of commercial American roots music. In addition to my chapter, there are essays by Greil Marcus, Ann Powers, Ronald D. Cohen, and numerous other excellent critics and scholars. I’ll be participating in the Bob Dylan Archive’s Dylan @ 80 virtual conference, for a panel discussion on May 24.

To celebrate Zilphia Horton’s 111th birthday on April 14, 2021, I talked with Bruce Triggs of the Accordion Noir Podcast about her life, work, and legacy … and, of course, her accordion. Bruce spliced it all together with an incredible playlist of music based on her story. It’s well worth a listen. You can stream or download it from AccordionNoir.org.
