Pete Seeger

So long Pete,

You loved everyone-A true man of the people-you lived long enough that we kind of forgot about you-that is our fault.

I never was a fan of your music but I am a big fan of a life filled with conviction.

And you lived on my river.

In fact, you really loved the Hudson River and fought to get it clean.

We have lost a consistent voice for freedom and the river has lost a friend.

The world is not better without you.

Thank you

I was looking through all the countries that have visited the cave on my WordPress stat thingy and noticed this big area of Greenland with no hits at all…. So I figured I would take a visit myself and found these guys

This sound is both enchanting and comforting. It is like The Lumineers with some special ethereal Artic-ness added in. But I don’t want to call this band a knock-off of anything else because they are unique.  They just seem to fit into this Nuevo folk music revival going on all over the world. I have no idea what they are saying but I know they sing truth because I can feel it. This dude takes regular notes and gently lifts his voice to a higher range flying to the heavens to produce a delightful resolution. This is pure magic. Maybe part of it is the language? I know French and Italian are called romantic but this language of Greenland is made for acoustic guitars and a gentle folk beat.

For more info on this band go to their website   http://www.nanook.gl/bio.html

And give this a listen!
