the ladies three - dona dona

another tune by calamity kat and her friends, the ladies three. this one with lead vocal duties taken over by madeline fendrick, who provided the lovely harmonies on 'shake you'. This is apparently an anti war song that was taught to madeline by her grandfather. i like the lyrics about the laughing wind. i like when songs are passed from one generation to the next. the modern folk music of america. thanks kat for the wonderful tunes!

the ladies three - shake you

very glad to have a new song to post by calamity kat, who was featured here in march accompanying herself on banjo on her song 'spring's a hobo'. this track finds her joined by a guitar, a fiddle and a harmony vocal, in a somewhat more formal recording, also in alaska, where 'spring's a hobo' was recorded. a fine and pretty tune with a properly heartworn story and melody that sails over it. quite excited to add it to the modern folk music of america. kat and her friends go by the name 'the ladies three'.
