Odetta (1930-2007)

Lifts me today, as she has so often before, whenever I needed lifting the most.
Speakers up, please.
Amazing Grace.


  1. On Nanci Griffith's "Other Voices Other Rooms 2", Odetta joins Emmylou Harris, Carolyn Hester, and Nance on a rousing version of "Wasn't That a Mighty Storm". It's a stellar performance by all of these legends, Odetta's, in particualar.

  2. The civil rights movement brought out the best in some people; and it merged a people's music with a people's struggle.

    Odetta, you will be remembered.
